Betty Mahmoody's account of her time in Iran is not only full of gross factual inaccuracies but also blatant racism and xenophobia that made the reading experience hard to stomach. Why would anybody fabricate or, in the case of Not Without My Daughter, embellish such horror stories? According to the book, Mahmoody's husband separated her from her daughter for weeks on end. These issues existed, but nobody talked about it.

Σοκ και δέος για μια κοινωνία όπου οι γυναίκες χρησιμεύουν ως μηχανές αναπαραγωγής παιδιών και κυρίως αγοριών για να διαιωνιστεί και το «υπέροχο» είδος τους και από κεί και πέρα αντιμετωπίζονται ως κούτσουρα , ως αντικείμα που οι καθωσπρέπει εκπρόσωποι του κορανίου μπορούν να ξεσπούν την οργή και τα πιο βίαια και χυδαία ένστικτά τους.
