Western interference has nothing to do with women’s rights in Iran
I speak to Setareh Sadeqi in Esfahan, Iran – a PhD in American studies at Tehran University, researcher, political analyst and translator. What Setareh speaks about will probably surprise many who are buying the US/UK Israeli and Saudi narratives about the “women’s rights” issue in Iran after the sad death of Mahsa Amini last month.
Setareh is also against the “morality police” and there are many things she would like to see change in Iran for women but she argues that the West calls for regime change have a very negative impact on any progress she and other women are working towards. The main stumbling block to any positive development in her country are Western barbaric sanctions.
