BBC: The History Hour: Women's Rights in Iran

Max Pearson’s The History Hour on the BBC World Service featured Mahnaz Afkhami on 17 Feb 2018.

Afkhami was asked about her role as Iran’s first ever minister on Women’s Affairs:  “It was a very interesting experience. There were 20 men and I was the only woman and I was very young….When I had meetings, the person who would bring a file to the meeting would look to see who is the oldest man in the meeting to give it to, they never thought that I could be leading a meeting. Every aspect of the role was new and unfamiliar to me and to others.”
