Standing with Iranian Women

November 2, 2022

Once again, Iranian women are risking everything for their rights and leading the charge for change despite continued attacks. It is critical the world understands their bravery and the gravity of the moment.

Leading advocates reflect on women’s role in the protest movement, the stakes for the future of peace and democracy in Iran, and how the world can act in solidarity with the Iranian people and Iranian women.
