This year's Lecture will be hosted by feminist activist, journalist, and writer with a background in the grassroot feminist movement in Iran, Parvin Ardalan and is titled:

'Jin Jian Azadi / Woman Life Freedom: A social vision for human dignity and human rights'

About Lecture

The government’s murder of Jina Amini in September 2022 rocketed Iranian society into a revolutionary moment where woman has emerged as a symbol of resistance at the intersection of all forms of discrimination. In this paradigm shift, the past and current protest movements are linked together through the celebrated slogan of “Jin Jian Azadi”. A new horizon of change has now opened in front of us.
