DAILY SIGNAL: Women of Iran Risk Their Lives for Freedom
Protesters shouting “women, life, freedom” are risking their lives in the streets of Iran.
For about 40 days now, men and women—many of them young women in high school and college—have taken to the streets to demand basic human rights being denied under Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader under the Islamist regime.
The death of one young woman, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, sparked the latest protests.
In September, the morality police arrested Amini and beat her repeatedly. She died in a coma three days later.
Her crime? Wearing her head scarf, known as a hijab, incorrectly.
The protests in Iran representone of the biggest women’s rights movements in recent history. Iranian human rights activists estimate that at least 201 Iranians have been killed in the nationwide protests and thousands more arrested.
On today’s episode of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we discuss the powerful fight of Iranian women for liberty, and what America’s position toward Iran should be, given the regime’s human rights record.
Also on today’s show, TikTok sensation Dylan Mulvaney, who identifies as transgender, was invited to the White House to interview President Joe Biden. We explain why it matters.
Plus, America’s education report card is in, and it’s a lot of bad news. We break it all down. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.
