This week my colleague at FOX5 DC, Iranian-American news anchor Shirin Rajaee joins me for an open conversation of what it’s been like watching the unrest fold in Iran and around the globe. Shirin who was born Iran shares how the country we see today was not the Iran her parents and so many before her once knew.
We also discuss why the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who died while in the custody of Iran's "morality police" was a tipping point for the younger generation. Almost two months after Amini's death the outrage and protests continue to grow.
At the heart of the protests are women, young women and girls. Those who’ve grown up in Iran or have followed the politics of the country say it’s unlike anything they have ever seen. As the Islamic Republic faces one of the biggest shows of dissent in recent history it’s a fight that the Iranian people cannot win alone. We explore the three words that are resonating across the globe: Women, Life, Freedom and why human rights in Iran is a win for democracy worldwide.
We discuss how this time is different and what Americans can do to show support.
