Woman, Life, Freedom Uprising – One year later

Jina Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish, 22 year old woman, was killed in custody of Iran’s morality police on September 16th last year, sparking an uprising led by Iranian women, and supported by ethnic and minority groups. 

As the anniversary of Amini’s death nears,  Iranian American women in Washington state share their experiences in Iran before they moved here.  They also share how the Woman, Life, Freedom Uprising has affected them.
