University of Virginia professor Farzaneh Milani, who chairs the Department Middle of Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts & Sciences, named "Woman of the Year" by the Iranian Women Studies Foundation at the group's annual conference in Cambridge, Mass.
Last year, Milani authored "Words Not Swords: Iranian Women Writers and the Freedom of Movement." The book challenges what she sees as the narrow Western stereotype of the shrouded, oppressed Muslim woman, who is a captive of her faith and her veil.

Milani -- born and raised in Teheran and educated in French and American schools -- used the lens of poetry, literature and film to argue in the book that Iranian women's true struggle is not against the veil, but for freedom of movement -- the ability to choose where to go.

Her 1992 book, "Veils and Words: The Emerging Voices of Iranian Women Writers," is also widely acclaimed and now in its 16th printing.
This documentary produced by the IWSF and directed by Hasan Sarbakhshian.
