The story of Susan Taslimi’s life

After the revolution, but before women were forced to wear hejab, Taslimi appeared on stage in a production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht. A group of religious zealots, threatened her because she was not wearing hejab, sending her a message that read: “If this production goes ahead, we will shoot you on stage so you will not think that you can do as you want.”
