Prostitution Behind the Veil by Nahid Persson

Human stories can be very sad especially because they are only a glimpse into the larger tragedy of a general decline in standard of living, education, employment and civil rights. Here's the story of two women in Iran.

This is the first part of the five part documentary as posted on YouTube. Here are the second, third, fourth and fifth and final parts.

* Thanks to my bro for the tip!


I just finished watching all 5 parts and also found another series (posted by the same person) called 'I Know I Am Not Alone'- you should definitely check it out. It's heartbreaking to think about what women go through in Iran- (and all over the world) but still, more people need to see these kind of stories & learn about what is really going on. We need to make decisions & take actions based on the way things truly are and not politically swayed news reports.

In related news... there is another documentary about prostitution called 'Born Into Brothels'. I think I heard about it here but couldn't find anything in the search. Anyway, I haven't seen it yet but after watching this on YouTube I'm bumping it up to #1 on my Netflix queue.

Thanks for sharing!

AH.com: I totally agree on the importance of educating ourselves about the grim realities facing many of our fellow human beings...even if the result is feeling helpless to do anything, being better aware and spreading the word must help! You will appreciate Born Into Brothels!
