Woman Life Freedom

Voices and Art from the Women's Protests in Iran

This panel event chaired by Jo Glanville will discuss hardship, hope and empowerment in modern-day Iran and offer a context to the revolution, as well as celebrating the women determined to reclaim their freedom, dignity and self-expression.

Our panel will reflect on the impact of the protests, where they are going and what the future holds for Iran at this critical moment in its history.

Panellists: Writer and editor Malu Halasa, freelance illustrator Roshi Rouzbehani and artist and activist Fari Bradley.

Jo Glanville is a journalist, award-winning editor and human rights campaigner, specialising in defence of freedom of expression.

‘The beauty and strength of our movement is that every single one of us here is a leader.’ – Golshan, Women’s Rights Activist in Iran
