The Good Wife - Women in Asia

May 12, 2016, 10:08 AM

The family – traditionally at the centre of life across most of Asia – is changing. New lifestyles are emerging across the region as people get married later, stay single longer or do not marry at all. What do these new patterns mean for women? A panel comprising Ramita Navai, author of City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death and the search for truth in Tehran, Elif Shafak, author of Honour and The Forty Rules of Love, and playwright Sharmila Chauhan of Born Again, The Husbands and 10 Women, discussed these issues. Chairing the panel is Radhika Sanghani, author and women’s writer at The Telegraph. #feminism #feminist #women #womensrights #turkey #iran #tehran #asia #elifshafak #honour #turkey
