Beyond the geopolitical issues and nuclear developments that drive public attention on Iran, women continue to struggle for their rights and dignity. Join us to spotlight the situation for women in Iran today and the barriers they face to advancing progress. Iranian activists and leaders will discuss the long history of Iranian women’s leadership and resilience despite severe pushback and demonstrate the need to center Iranian women’s rights within global discussions on human rights and women’s rights.
