Farzaneh Milani named as woman of the year by IWSF

University of Virginia professor Farzaneh Milani, who chairs the Department Middle of Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts & Sciences, named “Woman of the Year” by the Iranian Women Studies Foundation at the group’s annual conference in Cambridge, Mass. Last year, Milani authored “Words Not Swords: Iranian Women Writers and the Freedom of Movement.” The book challenges what she sees as the narrow Western stereotype of the shrouded, oppressed Muslim woman, who is a captive of her faith and her veil. Milani — born and raised in Teheran and educated in French and American schools — used the lens of poetry, literature and film to argue in the book that Iranian women’s true struggle is not against the veil, but for freedom of movement — the ability to choose where to go. Her 1992 book, “Veils and Words: The Emerging Voices of Iranian Women Writers,” is also widely acclaimed and now in its 16th printing. This documentary produced by the IWSF and directed by Hasan Sarbakhshian.

BOSS awards, conference cap busy year for single Soldiers 090902

By Rob McIlvaine
FMWRC Public Affairs

BOSS teams of Soldiers and Army civilians from around the world converged at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne, Va., during the second week of August to gain the skills to enhance team dynamics and the tools to better facilitate the execution of Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers programs at their garrisons.

“Our main objective here is to have the BOSS triad teams – the command sergeant majors, the BOSS presidents, and the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation advisors – come together for training opportunities, networking and sharing of ideas,” said Robert Lattanzi, BOSS program manager.

The BOSS program focuses on quality of life, recreation and leisure, and community service opportunities for single Soldiers. During this conference, team members attended nearly 50 educational seminars on marketing, budgeting and leadership.

“We’ve come a long way,” FMWRC commander Brig. Gen. Reuben D. Jones said about the 20 years the BOSS program has been in existence. “And we’ve got to set the table for the next decade … with your creativity, your innovation and your dedication to keep BOSS in front of leaders.”

Included in this year’s training forum was a competition for Best Installation & Static Display/Continuity Book, Best Event, and Best Photo Contest. Categories were grouped by single Soldier permanent party population: extra large, large, medium, small and extra small installations. Monetary awards were ,000 for First Place and 0 for Second Place.

The Best Installation Award was given to the garrison which exemplified the three core components of BOSS: Quality of Life, Recreation and Leisure, and Community Service. Each submission included a video presentation of activities during the past year demonstrating what made their installation’s BOSS Program unique and how members contributed. The submission also included a Static Display Board and Continuity Book, which is the “go-to” book on how to ensure continuity during the constant changeover of BOSS presidents.

“We have a need for permanent slots for BOSS presidents at 47 installations to ensure the BOSS program runs smoothly. These new positions if authorized, hopefully soon, will be two-year commitments,” Sgt. Danielle M. Colson, DA BOSS representative, said. The new two-year positions are one of the changes initiated through the Army Family Covenant.

The Best Event Award, judged solely on a three-minute video presentation, needed to clearly demonstrate what made their event unique such as creativity, benefit to participants, community involvement and costs.

The Best BOSS Photo Contest Award was given to the best photo which included the three core components of BOSS. It could not be the same photo used in the Best Installation/Event or Display Board. Monetary awards of 0 were given for first place winner and 0 for runner-up, regardless of installation size.
