PROTESTS IN IRAN : CONTEXT, STRATEGIES, AND (LIKELY) CONSEQUENCES
Join us for a panel on the ongoing protests in Iran triggered by the death of
22-year old Mahsa Amini in police custody. For four weeks now, women have been
protesting dress and behavior rules despite the government locking down access
to the internet and social media.

Panelists:
Ms. Leila Asadi, Activist and Scholar
Dr. Mehdi Aminrazavi, Professor of Religion, UMW
Dr. Farhang Rouhani, Associate Professor of Geography, UMW

Ms. Asadi has 12 years of experience in teaching, activism,
and research. Her research focuses on women’s rights in
Iran and the international regime on refugee protection. She
has been working with the National Democratic Institute to
empower civil society in Iran.
