After the brutal death of Mahsa Amini Iranian have been fighting for almost three months in the streets of Iran and risking their lives. The Islamic Republic is trying to brutally suppress this call for freedom by killing people in the streets and executing prisoners. Still protests in Iran are not slowing down and it’s turning to a women’s revolution. This evening we zoom in on how it is to live as a woman in Iran during these protests but also under the regime of Islamic Republic. We listen to personal stories from women of 3 different generations in Iran to understand how their fight was carried through generations and resulted in ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’. We also watch video letters of Iranian women on how it is at the moment in Iran for them. The evening is guided by beautiful music and closes with the opportunity to ask your questions.
