STARR FORUM Iran and the Struggle for ‘Normalcy’: Woman, Life, Freedom

The Starr Forum from MIT Center for International Studies will have a virtual panel to discuss the current situation in Iran on January 25th, 2023 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm.

The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini on September 16, 2022 in government custody sparked what is commonly referred to as the “hijab protests” but the uprising is about much more, including such themes as agency, women rights, human rights, democracy, political freedoms, due process and justice. This panel investigates how women are at the forefront of resistance to the “Resistance State” in the struggle for “normalcy.”

This panel is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information about the panel click here.
