In the aftermath of the senseless killing of 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini in police custody in Iran, toppied with the country’s intense dissent toward the Islamic regime, mass protests have occurred across the nation, highlighting the strength of Iran’s people. Their unwillingness to back down in the face of oppression is a strong message that has resonated throughout the international community. As Iran’s government emboldens its harsh crackdown against protestors, strong action must be taken to address this ongoing crisis and protect the Iranian people – especially women and children.
In lieu of our monthly Global Patron Member-hosted Concordia Live, we invited you to join us for this timely discussion exploring the ongoing protests in Iran and how in many ways, women are leading these unprecedented and ongoing uprisings in their homeland. We explore the ongoing protests, and discussed actions that must be taken to protect the rights of Iranian citizens.
