Scheherazade Now by Mina Keshavarz (ESoDoc 2017)

If you are a victim of domestic violence in Iran, you have nowhere to run to, no laws to protect you and few institutions to support you. This project documents a collective attempt towards change.

This project is the "digital extension" of the project Mina brought to ESoDoc, "Soora - Breaking the silence".
