Iran hasn’t always been a conflict zone. 1970s Iran resembled most Western countries. But in 1979, the government changed from a monarchy to a theocracy, causing the mostly secular public to be ruled by radical Muslims. Now the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini has sparked country-wide protests, with Gen Z at the forefront. In this episode, Iranian American Shadi (last name left out for safety) explains in plain language why Americans (& everyone else) should care about the Iranian protests. #womenlifefreedomIf you liked this episode, you’ll also like episode 48: FORCED MARRIAGE IN AMERICA?Guest:  https://www.instagram.com/that_fit_doctor/ | Contact United Nations &  demand action 1-800-367-5437 | Contact UNICEF https://www.ohchr.org/en/contact-us | Contact your representatives https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative  Host:  https://www.meredithforreal.com/  | https://www.instagram.com/meredithforreal/  | meredith@meredithforreal.com | https://www.youtube.com/meredithforreal  | https://www.facebook.com/meredithforrealthecuriousintrovertSponsors: https://uwf.edu/university-advancement/departments/historic-trust/ | https://www.ensec.net/
