Women's Rights in the Middle East Research Seminar

Twitter Revolution in IranOxford University’s Middle East centre at St. Antony’s College presents a series of seminars under the title of Women’s Rights in the Middle East Research Seminar. The Women’s Rights Research Seminars was founded in 2009 with the initial aim of directing interdisciplinary scholarly attention to the legal status of women in Iran. Since then, the research group has broadened to include the rights of women in the Middle East, covering topics such as the politics of fertility, women in ethnic minorities, and the treatment of women in states governed and influenced by Islamic law and jurisprudence.

Mehri Zarifikolyane, one of the scholars at OCMS, was invited to present a seminar on 11th May 2016. Her paper was entitled: “The Twitter Revolution in Iran: A Comparative Perspective on Gender Behaviour at Times of Normality and Upheavals”.
