Among them were the Iranian women of this study, who as political activists within leftist organisations had to leave Iran when the Islamists assumed absolute power in 1981 and suppressed all opposition. These women became exiles throughout the world, including the Netherlands and the United States, where I conducted my research. My fieldwork, which took eight months in each country, was concentrated in Amsterdam in 1996 and Los Angeles in 1997. During that time, for some months I participated in and observed the Iranian communities in both countries to grasp the dynamics in each context. The majority of women interviewed in both cities have a higher education and jobs related to their fields of study. The Iranian revolution of 1979 forced many people to leave their country.
