'Women, life, freedom': Women's liberation, minority rights and revolution in Iran

In our first in a series of long-form interviews with great minds, we speak with human rights advocate Dr Kat Eghdamian on why the fight for women's liberation in Iran is not about religion, but control.

Dr Eghdamian explains how the death of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman, inspired a nationwide movement built on Kurdish traditions and slogans, and what we can learn from the young people putting their lives on the line for a better future.
