In her previous job as a sales director for a local import/export company, Oksana says she encountered exorbitant cattiness and sexism.
She learned to read and write Farsi by taking free public classes for illiterate women, where chador-clad grandmothers would question, with a mix of curiosity and castigation, why such a bright young woman couldn't read. "It took some explaining for them to understand that I was not actually illiterate," Oksana laughs.
"Ultimately I think it was better than taking a normal language course." This somewhat untraditional path to reading and writing Farsi may not be for everyone: Oksana holds a master's degree in linguistics.
