Iran Women in Politics

In this Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, photo, Iranian actress Masoumeh Karimi, right, plays the role of Majles Banou, as actress Saba Kamali, center, plays the role of Queen Anis wife of Nasser-e-Din Shah, who ruled Persia from 1848 to 1896, and actor Behzad Mohseni plays the role of a cleric in the play, "The Housewife Government," at Iranshahr Theater, in Tehran, Iran. The play sought to portray the hidden roles that a 19th century king's wives played in Iranian politics. But at the same time it is a metaphor on Iran's present-day struggles between modernists seeking to open the country to the outside world and hard-liners pushing the vehemently anti-Western stance.
