Part travelogue, part biography this important book reveals the various challenges the author Kate Dolan negotiated to help establish Iran’s first women’s harm reduction facility. The book is important because we know very little about the experiences of women who use drugs in this part of the world. Dolan provides insights in to the lives of the women who visit the clinic- a environment where they can safely remove their head coverings, smoke cigarettes, laugh and cry, be themselves and access a range of resources, health services and medical interventions.
