Scattered Memories

Iran, Tehran

2016 - 2022

The future can be more pleasant and bearable for women who have faced different kinds of violence and abuse. They have been waiting for the improvement in their living conditions. These women were somewhere between tradition and modernity. Their mothers told them about traditional and cultural values. In their childhood, they saw the scenes that engraved this traditional way of living in their minds.

Domestic and cultural violence against women has always been a serious threat to their growth and prosperity. Now, these women fix their eyes on the future of the world. They have told each other the memories of many years of violence and discrimination from generation to generation.
The future to come can make the situation better for women.
