Despite government crackdown, change is underway in Iran
Sep 15, 2023

President Biden today marked one year since the death of Mahsa Amini, who died after being manhandled by Iran’s “morality police” for not wearing her hijab properly. Many protesters hoped for the downfall of the regime in the wake of her death, but the ayatollahs have survived, and the regime is rounding up activists and journalists, hoping to pre-empt any new demonstrations. Mahnaz Afkhami was minister of women’s affairs in Iran’s government before the 1979 Islamic revolution, and she joins the show to explain why she believes that, despite the regime’s brutal crackdown, change is underway inside Iran. 

Also on today’s show: correspondent Jomana Karadsheh reports from Libya; Norwegian Refugee Council’s Jan Egeland; Catherine Fieschi, Director, Open Society Foundations Europe and Central Asia
