All About Women (Digital Talks): Iran: Woman, Life, Freedom زن، زندگی، آزادی (31-13 March) (Stage 5, Stage 6, TAFE Students, Teacher, Parent)

On Demand

Learn about global citizenship, human rights, and identity as Iranian-Australian women give an insight into life in Iran, the power of protest, and how Australians can be allies at this moment in time


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

AVAILABLE from 13 MARCH ON DEMAND

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 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 ZÖJ.
