Women's lives in Iran

Our April talk was given by Sahar who discussed the changes affecting women's lives in Iran over the 20th century up until recent times. It was a most enlightening talk that had the audience captivated. On behalf of all attendees, I would like to say a very big thank you.



The May talks will come in two parts:
Part one; "The Russian Orthodox church versus Atheism"
Michael Nadyarnyy will discuss the Orthodox Church in Russia and why seventy years of communism failed to eradicate religiosity in Russia. He will also discuss how religion has been and still is used politically in Russia today. 
Part two; "A heathen in the Kingdom" 
Brad wanted to make this presentation in April, however he had a family emergency. So he will now present his talk in May.
Brad has lived for many years in the Middle East, living in and frequently visiting countries such as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar. He has mixed and done business with people from all of these countries. Brad will discuss the many idiosyncrasies and contradictions of life and attitudes in these countries. His talk will be an absolute eye opener. 
For safety reasons, Brad's talk will not be video recorded.
