In a country where the government dictates when and where a woman artist can show her work, Samira is bravely painting Iranian women as she sees them — not just as veiled objects. Tehran Unveiled profiles four bold and creative women who reveal how the Iranian government views their art and how oppressive restrictions curb self-expression. Their desire to follow their dreams surpasses their need for well-being, and as a result, these courageous women are risking their livelihoods to tell their stories and change the conversation about a "woman's place" in Islamic society, Iran, and the world.
