Transnational Feminism, Solidarity, and Care for #WomanLifeFreedom
Minnesota Humanities Center

Date and Time: February 28 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm CST

Recent events and protests in Iran have catapulted human rights and feminist issues onto the world stage, and yet these movements in Iran are not new. Join Dr. Yalda Hamidi (Minnesota State University, Mankato) and special guest panelists Prof. Ibtesam Al Atiyat (St. Olaf College) and Ph.D. student and human rights lawyer Tahmina Sobat (University of Minnesota) as they reflect on the Iranian feminist revolution of 2022 and the politics of solidarity, care, and transnational feminism.

Prior to a panel discussion, each scholar will discuss how the current women’s revolution in Iran aligns with their own research. Dr. Hamidi will consider Iranian diasporic feminism/s and how her participation and engagement with the Green Movement of 2009 shapes her understanding of the current unfolding feminist revolution. Dr. Al Atiyat will share examples of Arab women’s solidarity with Iranian women and share reflections on the limits that have surfaced. Finally, Ph.D. student Tahmina Sobat will discuss Afghan women’s longstanding advocacies against imperialism and war, noting the possibilities and perils of transnational feminist solidarities regarding the situation in Iran.

Co-sponsored by the Women’s Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
