There were some days of sweet family memories in Tehran, but they are outweighed by the wounds left by her father's rage. What disgusts me is how leftwing feminists demonize people who challenge Islam's oppression of women, proefering to side with the Islamists just because they are anti-Western and anti-Israel. After a few weeks, they all realized that the situation was not working for anyone.

Culture shock within my culture, if you will. Mind you, I only saw the movie that one time and it was enough. Remember also, the people are just like us, but it's their government that has the guns and unfortunately, the fanatical people run the government. They probably saw a mom who was fighting to keep her kid uneducated and tied to another country's culture to her detriment. There were times, says Mahtob, when her dad would rain punches on her mother. If that weren't reason enough, Mahmoody had a proven agenda in writing this book with Hoffer, and the fact that it was published in the United States so soon after the hostage crisis, when public opinion was already so turned against Iran, also points to a monetary agenda as well as a political one.

My heart breaks for every single child and woman who is abused every day, kept in a cage and ordered to fit in in a suffocating society. I re-read it and was still entranced by the excellent, page-turning excitement the story offered.

I did not want to be here, but I was, so now I had to make thebest of it. How does it feel like being in an Islamic Nation? It's not possible to completely tell this story in a 2-hour movie. As a physician educated and trained in America, Moody would surely be numbered among the privileged elite of his native land. The movie is simply too illogical to resonate emotionally. She gives its beauties their due, and also details meet Such a harrowing story! We visited frequently until shortly after all the troubles started.

Her mother Betty Mahmoody remembers knitting the sweater in Iran, having begged her husband to find yarn so she could make something warm for her daughter to wear. Her husband was an abusive jerk, but so are a lot of white American husbands, unfortunately. This was mainly due to Moody not having the necessary paperwork to be employed as a doctor in Iran.

Also, the book isn't an isolated phenomenon. According to the book, Mahmoody's husband separated her from her daughter for weeks on end.
