The Turning Point

Have you ever been ashamed of something you’ve thought before?

I was ashamed. I could not believe how naive I was. A trip changed my entire image all at once. It was like a movie that starts with making the audience believe something, and then through a chain of actions, it shatters it all only to unfold a whole different perspective.

Wearing black from head to toe. Conservative or religious. Not allowed to share the stories of their lives. That’s what I thought of Iranian women before taking a trip to Iran.

I came across this woman only tour package that would take me to all the essentials of Iran but also to places only women were allowed to enter. I thought to myself that could be interesting to reconfirm my beliefs and thought about these women on the other side.

Let me take you through the details of my journey to Iran in the itinerary so you can decide for yourself if what I thought was aligned with the reality of Iran.

Itinerary

Story of the Day

To get a glimpse of Tehran, we went to Tabiat bridge on this night. I was surprised to see many women walking alone at night. I thought to myself maybe that’s just how they are in Tehran.

Story of the Day

Going to a family dinner at night was just so much fun. My host was a woman who not only had a lovely family life but was a successful engineer who also worked every day outside. I felt at home by their side with all the delicious food and conversations we had that night.

Story of the Day

To go to the women park where women could walk and exercise freely without their Hijab was interesting. I got to see modern women living in the city and then at night, see the exact opposite side. In Abyaneh, I got to hang out with rural women living a unique lifestyle.

    Iranian women without hijab in an intimate setting where they are allowed to live their full expression

Story of the Day

On this day, I did not even think about Iranian women and my beliefs about them at all. The beauty of Isfahan mesmerized me. Naqshe Jahan and the historical mosques. The bazaar. Ali Qapu, and so much to see and explore on my journey through Iran.

Story of the Day

Never thought to myself going to a beauty salon could give me this much insight about women in Iran. That’s where I got to meet and hear the stories of many women. They were from a variety of backgrounds and different places from which they had come. It was time to say goodbye to the many wonderful women I had met on my trip to Iran.

Experiences

    Jolfa Square is the heart of the Armenian community in Isfahan.
