About This Event
The massive national uprising in Iran, following the tragic death of Mahsa Amini while being detained by Iranian authorities, is being led and sustained by women and girls. Protests in 146 cities in Iran and around the world have supported the movement, rallied by the slogan Woman, Life, Freedom. As the Iranian regime violently cracks down on protests, the human rights situation is rapidly deteriorating. Though nearly 450 Iranians have died, and thousands have been arrested, the predominantly women-and-youth-led protests persist. Will the movement’s momentum endure? What will be the impact on women’s rights in Iran?
