Last month, demonstrations erupted across Iran in response to the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, after she was arrested and beaten by the Iranian “Morality Police” for improper veiling. Since Amini’s death, Iranian security forces have imprisoned, beaten and killed demonstrators across the country for speaking out in support of women’s rights and self-determination, and against state oppression and violence. On Wednesday, November 2 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. CDT, the Northwestern Roberta Buffett institute for Global Affairs will host a virtual dialogue with Elham Hoominfar, Assistant Professor in the Global Health Studies Program at Northwestern University, to discuss the unfolding protests in Iran and the regime's brutal response.

This event is rescheduled from its original date on Tuesday, October 25. Register here.
