Strong & Unwavering: Women of Iran

Feel the world through film

It is September 2022. In the Iranian capital Tehran, young Mahsa Amini is arrested. The charge: she was not wearing her hijab (headscarf) properly. At the police station, she is mistreated to such an extent that she does not survive, resulting in violent protests.

Reason for WCA to pay tribute this year to the brave women in Iran fighting for more freedom in the programme Strong & Unwavering: Women of Iran. Because self-determination is a universal right, for both men and women.
