Giuseppe Acconcia, @stradedellest, professor at Padua University, has been a journalist working out of Iran and is the author of “The Great Iran,” and most recently co-authored, with Lorenza Perini, of “The Arab Uprisings: Protests, Gender, and War, 2011-2021.”

Acconcia here provides us with background to the new conflict, the critical role Iranian women have played in the resistance in Iran for some time now and the current state of the uprising, and other factors, like the Iranian economy and sanctions, that are affecting the current protests.
