Scholars at Risk: Launch of the podcast, Free to Think



Scholars at Risk announces the launch of a new podcast, Free to Think, featuring conversations with interesting, thoughtful, and inspiring individuals whose work falls at the always sensitive intersection of power and ideas.

Episode 1, “Women’s Rights, Whatever the Cost,” launched March 8th in honor of International Women’s Day. It features a conversation with Marcia Ross and Jeff Kaufman, the team behind NASRIN, a beautiful and inspiring new film about Iranian human rights attorney Nasrin Sotoudeh. 

Sotoudeh has been called "Iran's Nelson Mandela." The filmmakers show her as she is: a lawyer, activist, feminist, wife, mother, friend, and a central figure in an extraordinary generation of Iranian women who simply refuse to accept anything less than full and equal rights. 

Listen, share, review…
