Description

The enforcers of the hardliners’ mores may have been disbanded; it is hard to know if the regime is bending to protesters or sowing confusion. Either way the disquiet looks set to continue. We take a look at China’s widely watched nightly news and the narrative it hopes to promulgate. And why women are suddenly flooding into America’s funeral-services industry. Help us make the show better: take our listener survey at http://economist.com/intelligencesurvey For full access to print, digital and audio editions of The Economist, subscribe here www.economist.com/intelligenceoffer

However we experience the highest sexual discrimination and inhumanity in Iran, we have lots of problems too. We are fighting for our right to have a normal life it's not just about hijab. we live in a country with lack of jobs, highest inflation,air and water pollution, famine & poverty.
