The Georgetown University Institute for Women, Peace and Security honored Iranian women for their enduring fight for human rights during a London ceremony on October 1st, 2019.
As Iran’s regime continues to provoke international debate, the country is going through one of the darkest moments in history with respect to human rights and, in particular, women’s rights. This event showcased the long tradition of Iranian women’s leadership and the diversity of ways women inside Iran and in the diaspora have been committed to women’s rights.
