DESCRIPTION: Join us for an evening of solidarity with Iranian women! We start with a talk by Dr Leili Galehdaran about the origins of cutting and throwing hair in the literature of Iran, Mesopotamia, and Greece. We then move to a performance art gallery including interactive choreography, pictures, and fighting symbol displays for addressing themes of women’s rights and female resistance. Every visitor in-person or online is a potential performer in this gallery. For more information about what will happen, please see the Eventbrite site shorturl.at/osxCZ or email us.
Let’s gather in solidarity to make change happen!
