    Anonymous BattleMonday, August 24, 2020 – Friday, May 14, 2021Library open hours:Monday – Thursday / 7:30am – 12amFriday / 7:30am – 7pmSaturday / 12pm – 6pmSunday / 5pm – 11pmThis body of work explores the role of the Muslim woman in a changing Islamic society, and seeks to understand her life behind the veil. A revolution has emerged in many Islamic countries, a battle over what is accepted and unaccepted, what is right and wrong. A younger generation of mostly educated women, newly aware of their rights and powers gifted to them through a glance into modernity, has catalyzed a growing struggle between traditional and contemporary gender roles and identity.In the images, a contrast can be found between the veil and the woman’s pose. This is a reference to ancient Islamic culture and traditions, incorporating Persian literature and dance, where the woman was portrayed as a strong beacon, consistently forming the center of attention, desire, and love.The younger generation is struggling to navigate the power held over them, grasping to find forms of freedom behind the façade of everyday life and activities. Islamic laws have long influenced the mind and body of the woman, and women are now demanding their equality in gender roles and sexuality in order to build a new, impartial, and balanced world for future generations in the Islamic world.About the ArtistFazilat Soukhakian is an Iranian artist, photographer and scholar.
