Nina Ansary is an internationally recognized Iranian-American scholar, award-winning author, and women's rights advocate. She is a UN Women Global Champion for Innovation and a Visiting Fellow at The London School of Economics Centre for Women, Peace & Security.
Anonymous Is a Woman takes readers on a 4,000-year global and historic journey exposing the repercussions of centuries of gender inequality and challenges centuries of cultural bias through biographical profiles of fifty extraordinary, yet forgotten women innovators to advance an unconventional argument for equality and inclusivity.
100% of proceeds for the book will be donated to human rights and womens rights organizations, with the primary recipients being The Center for Human Rights in Iran, a New York-based organization dedicated to the protection and promotion of human rights in Iran; and The London School of Economics Centre for Women, Peace and Security.
