This Week: Continuing Coverage of Women in Iran

This week on Women's Magazine, we continue our coverage of the struggle of women in Iran. We will talk with York University Sociologist, Haideh Moghissi about the Iranian women’s struggle for Equality in the aftermath of the 1979 revolution, the challenges they have faced and the strategies they have devised to reform the discriminatory laws against women. And we will talk to Malihe Razazan of KPFA’s voices of the Middle East and North Africa about women’s roles in the ongoing mass protests challenging the outcome of June 12th presidential election that handed president Ahmadinejad a second term.

Plus Jovelyn's World, the Women's Community Calendar and information about the upcoming LSB election.
