Invitation from NGO CSW New York

The women’s uprising in Iran has captivated the world. The death of Mahsa Amini in government custody in September sparked protests all over Iran. What started out as a spontaneous women’s resistance has grown and evolved into a sustained cross-sectoral movement calling not only for reform of repressive policies in relation to women, but for structural changes in society.

Join us for an event addressing the situation in Iran and its global implications. We will have a panel discussion consisting of Iranian women who will offer an analysis of the uprising in Iran, followed by another panel of women active in the women’s movements across different regions who will discuss the global implications of this women-led uprising. The event will showcase how feminists from around the world are working together to build global solidarity in their advocacy for structural change. A dedicated conversation will be held with UN Women senior leadership as part of the event to discuss and present key feminist asks from the NGO CSWs in the Regions and other global women’s movements. Finally, we will discuss concrete steps for building global solidarity for feminist advocacy purposes.

This event is presented by the NGO CSWs in the Regions and sponsored by The New York Women's Foundation and Iranian American Women's Foundation, in partnership with UN Women.

Interpretation will be available in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. However, the recording will be available in English with subtitles in the 6 UN languages on the Youtube channel.
