Foreign Policy Chat: The Deadly Situation in Iran

Iran erupted into protests on September 16, following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in an ICU after she was beaten by Iranian police for the crime of not covering her head properly.

Americans — and people throughout the world — are watching the events in Iran unfold, as many women lead anti-government protests, taking off their hijabs, calling for an end to the current Iranian government, and facing brutal and violent police action for doing so.

On this Foreign Policy Chat, Meaghan Mobbs, Ellie Cohanim, and Asra Nomani discuss the events in Iran, the oppressive policies women face there and consider what the role of the United States should be in advancing freedom in Iran and worldwide.
