Throughout history, Iranian women have participated in national uprisings. In 2022, they are leading them, taking direct aim at the regime’s repressive treatment of women and girls, while the Iranian government is reacting with lethal force to attempt to end the protests. People across Iran and around the world—representing different ages, genders, income levels, and geographies—are joining or supporting the women- and student-led movement, despite the government-sponsored violence in response.

What makes these protests different? What might we expect next? Join us for an examination of the history and contemporary political and social conditions in Iran giving rise to current events, including the complicated role of gender, as well as a discussion of how the situation may evolve in the coming months.

Free and open to the public.
