INSIDE IRAN'S NEW REVOLUTION

I've stopped pulling up my scarf to cover my hair when I pass by the guards. I know that nothing can stop one of them from raising his gun and targeting me. But this is for the greater good.

Following the death of Mahsa-Jina Amini in September 2022, the angry cries of the Iranian people have rung out in the streets. Citizens of all ages and backgrounds come together to call for an end to the regime's injustice, violence and repression, chanting 'Woman, life, freedom'.

The current protests are the most widespread and important the country has seen since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. But they are also part of a long struggle for women's rights in Iran. In this incisive, moving narrative, an anonymous Iranian woman describes her daily activism in the streets of Tehran, and shows it to be part of a long and powerful tradition of female resistance.
