Woman. Life. Freedom: A Conversation on the Iranian Uprising  

October 27, 2021 

4 - 5.30 pm PST 


A conversation on the Iranian uprising


Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman, died after being arrested by Iranian morality police in Tehran on September 13, 2022 for allegedly violating a state mandate requiring women to cover their hair. Since Ms. Amini’s death, many protesters have taken to the streets in Iran demanding an end to state violence and policing. Join us for an informative discussion with Iranian feminist scholar-activists on the uprisings.
