Iranian artist Shirin Neshat is known for her elegant work about the role of women in Islamic society. The breadth of her work ranges from photographs to film pieces, and her latest work Women Without Men was no exception. Neshat's latest production is an adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's novel of the same name, and follows the stories of five women in their intertwining tales of humanity, courage, and perseverance, making this an iconic work beyond the confines of just Islamic art.
