Elephant in the Room #43 – Feminist perspective on the Revolution in Iran and the Iranian diaspora

Baharak is an Iranian living in exile for some years already. She had to leave Iran and is now located in Leipzig. We talked about the feminist aspects of the revolution in Iran and the problems which appear with the uprising in the diaspora. The diaspora is as diverse as the people today in the streets of Iran. And different groups claim the revolution for their believes.
