Abstract: This paper is a study of Iranian Bahá'í women who experienced imprisonment in the Islamic Republic of Iran following the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Aspects of individual resistance and resilience are explored through life history interviews. Through the examination of those histories I was better able to understand and explore the narratives the research participants provided. The intersections between the principles of the Bahá'í Faith and the way they have been enacted in the context of Iran in that period provided the broader picture within which the narratives are set.
