Zanan Magazine, a feminist publication in Iran, has recently been shut down by the government. Founded in 1991, Zanan was the leading feminist magazine in Iran, covering topics like spousal abuse, honor killings, and sex trafficking. Ms. Magazine had an interview a while back with Zanan editor Shahla Sherkat, and it’s a good look at how important the magazine has been for Iranian feminism. Hopefully the mag will get back up and going eventually.
