About the Event

Recent domestic disturbances highlight the fact that Iran’s  totalitarian government has lost the support of its citizens.  The Supreme Leader is 84 and in bad health. Crippling economic sanctions from the West are driving the country  more and more into the arms of Russia and China. What  does the future have in store for Iran? After the revolution 43 years ago, the Islamic Republic made early strides in providing education, infrastructure, and services to the poorest of Iranians. This progress has largely stalled as jobs are centered in the large cities and the brain drain  continues. Will the Republic stand against a revolt led by a new generation that  feels it has nothing left to lose?  He is a  member of the Council of Foreign Relations and is active in a local Great Decisions  Group. Henry has a BA from Hamilton College and an MBA from the Tuck School  of Business at Dartmouth.  Dinner: Members $25, Nonmembers $30 (plus service fee and taxes).  5:30 Social Hour/6:15pm Presentation/7:15pm Dinner  please call or email to make your reservation.  612-813-5300/ frontdesk@womansclub.org
