Event Details

Revolution Books supports the uprising in Iran – courageous people,
especially young women, taking to the streets across Iran in the face of police tear gas, batons and bullets. This rebellion was sparked when Iran’s “morality police” killed Mahsa Amini in custody. Her “crime”? Her hair was not completely covered by her hijab, the mandatory headscarf. The fury of young women burning their hijabs in bonfires in the streets has touched people everywhere women are oppressed – that is, the entire world.

Come see Persepolis. This is the first of a series of events we will do on Iran. This 2007 film presents a vivid picture of a young girl growing up in Iran. Through her story and that of her family, you see what it feels like inside the Islamic Republic, and see what is behind today’s massive rejection of the regime. Stay for a discussion.
