The beating to death of Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian Kurdish woman, by the morality police for not wearing her headscarf properly has triggered massive popular demonstrations and violent state repression across Iran. What do Iranian protesters want? And why is this movement important for democratic struggles across the world? Join us for a cross-campus dialogue featuring Prof. Norma Claire Moruzzi (UIC), Prof. Kaveh Ehsani (De Paul), and Prof. Atef Said (UIC).

The event is co-sponsored by the UIC Middle East and Muslim Societies Cluster, Institute for the Humanities, Women’s Leadership and Resources Center, Arab American Cultural Center, Departments of Sociology, Political Science, and Gender and Women’s Studies, and the DePaul University Department of International Studies, Department of Women & Gender Studies, Department of Political Science, and Islamic World Studies Program.
