Content : The Iranian girl passionate about football!

Azadeh is Iranian. She is passionate about football but in her country, girls can only assist to female matches, and boys to male matches.

Azadeh will use tricks to live her passion despite everything!

And when it is her turn to be on the field with her girl team, she is the best and nobody can stop her!

A feminist and humanist book, based on a true story.
This picture book is highlighting the struggle of Iranian women in their fight for their independence, freedom and equality between men and women. Sport is an important issue.
