This book discusses the concepts of exile, trauma, and nostalgia and explains how they all come together to create a sense of culture shock for four influential and quintessential Iranian-American women; women who exemplify, in many cases, the experiences of a number of Iranian exiles. Azar Nafisi, Nahid Rachlin, Tara Bahrampour, and Azadeh Moaveni, despite their different life experiences and ages, all encountered culture shock as it related to male-female relations, Iranian gender norms and issues of sex and sexuality and treatments and views of the female body as it relates to reproduction. With the current state of affairs, it is important to study and understand many of these important issues, especially as it relates to immigration.
