Three young women - Sima Boozani, Rou Shaun and Susan Azardi are peaceful “soldiers” conscripted into Iran’s Army of Knowledge. By teaching reading and writing to young girls and illiterate women in the nation’s remote villages, these young women are quietly ushering in a social revolution in the oldest civilization in the world.
