How Can Women and Girls Win in Iran?


On December 6, Zócalo Public Square presents “How Can Women and Girls Win in Iran?,” co-presented with the Goldhirsh Foundation. Today, people are pouring into the streets of Iran demanding change. But can a century of feminist resistance combined with a new generation of activists have what it takes to turn the tide on a 40-year crackdown on freedom?

Iran analyst Holly Dagres, artist Sahar Ghorishi, and anthropologist Pardis Mahdavi join Zócalo to discuss if young women hold the key to a just future for Iran. Moderated by Porochista Khakpour, Author of Brown Album.

Zócalo invites the in-person audience to continue the conversation with the speakers and each other at a post-event reception with complimentary drinks and small bites.
