Episode details

Dozens of people have died in street protests in Iran following the death in police custody of 22 year old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the morality police for allegedly violating the law that requires women to cover their hair with a hijab - or headscaf.


Adrian Goldberg hears from Nasrin Parvaz, a women's rights activist forced to flee Iran in 1993 after being imprisoned and tortured so badly that she developed a brain tumour.

She’s detailed her experiences in a book called One Woman’s Struggle In Iran – A Prison Memoir.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
