Publisher's Synopsis

The photo of a woman standing proudly, face bare, hair blowing in the wind.

Her crime: removing her veil, or hijab, which is compulsory for women in Iran.


Masih's self-portrait sparked 'My Stealthy Freedom', a social media campaign that went viral.


An enlightening, intimate invitation into a little-known world, this is the extraordinary memoir of a woman who overcame poverty, prison, and exile and encourages others to do the same.

'A must-read for anyone who cares about women's equality and autonomy' SHERYL SANDBERG

'Masih Alinejad is a flame-thrower for the rights of all women' TINA BROWN

'Passionate, riveting' New York Times Book Review
