"If I go home, I'll be arrested" with Iranian feminist Samaneh Savadi
This week, Alex and Em talk to Iranian feminist activist Samaneh Savadi. The Islamic Republic of Iran has been experiencing turmoil as a result of the government’s misogynistic regime and the murders of many protestors and dissenters.
After noticing their story views drop significantly whenever they spoke out about this issue, the girls wanted to bring a deeper awareness of it to themselves and to others by talking to Samaneh about her understanding and experience. Samaneh herself cannot go home to Iran out of fear of being arrested, or worse, for speaking out and campaigning for women’s rights. She suggests that one of the best ways to help women in Iran is by continuing to speak out, so hopefully this episode gives you the impetus to do so.
