Saba Vasefi, Gelareh Pour & Shokoofeh Azar
Moderated by Kylie Moore-Gilbert
Iranian-Australian women give an inside look at the woman-led revolution in Iran, the power of protest, and how Australians can be allies at this incredible moment in history.
Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish-Iranian woman, died in police custody after being arrested by Iran’s morality police. Her death ignited protests across the country, with thousands of women and girls burning their veils and cutting their hair in defiance of the regime. The unrest was met by severe crackdowns, violence and even execution. Join us to hear from Iranian-Australian women as they tell us what the future for women and all Iran might look like. Together we will explore what role Australia has played - both in the treatment of refugees and in advocating for human rights - as well as how the diaspora and their allies can help. This unmissable panel will be followed by a gorgeous musical set by Gelareh Pour.
