The Story of Mahsa Amini with Azadeh Ahsahi

Last year, a revolution began in Iran over the death of Mahsa Amini—a fight that still continues today. In this episode, Azadeh Ahsahi joins us to speak on what’s happening in Iran, despite the lack of new coverage, and how we can continue to be allies for the women of Iran.
