A Separation (Podcast)

You know, we all should be thankful for the #Metoo movement because it has brought to the light rape and mistreatment of women all over the planet. I believe it has already brought about change through awareness. But what we don’t know and don’t think about it that men are often falsely accused and even imprisoned in some countries for alleged crimes against women that may have never occurred.

Watching this movie “A Separation” I saw a country that was so backward in the way it deals with justice but I also saw just how difficult it might be for a man in his 30’s to exist in these countries. This film takes place in Iran.
