Mrs. Maryam Hejazi is Chair of OIAC Women Outreach Program. Ms. Hejazi was born in Karaj, Iran. The rise of clerics in Iran ushered the gradual elimination of women from meaningful professional positions. This has particularly been true for those women with outspoken democratic ideals. For her views, Ms. Hejazi was banned from teaching in Iran and in the early 80’s went into exile in the United States. She has since been an outspoken critic of the Iranian regime and a leader in the Iranian women living in the United States. Ms. Hejazi lives with her husband and son in California
