Show Notes

On this week’s 51%, we speak with Marjan Keypour, founder of the Alliance for Rights of All Minorities, about a new report examining violence against women in Iran. We also stop by Russell Sage College to listen in on an important conversation with Iranian-American journalist and women’s rights activist Masih Alinejad. And we also learn how the lack of menstrual supplies impacts girls’ schooling worldwide – and hear from one organization working to bridge the gap.

Guests: Marjan Keypour, founder of the Alliance for Rights of All Minorities; Ellie von Wellsheim, founder of The MoonCatcher Project

You can read the full report by Stop Femicide in Iran, a project of ARAM, here. You can also watch Masih Alinejad’s full conversation for Russell Sage College’s “Women-led Revolutions” event here.

51% is a national production of WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, New York. Our host is Jesse King, our associate producer is Jody Cowan, our executive producer is Dr. Alan Chartock, and our theme is “Lolita” by the Albany-based artist Girl Blue.
