Iran is in turmoil again with students protesting delays in democratic reform and violent treatment by police. 65% of Iran's population is under 25 - have Iran's clerical leaders lost sway with the generation born after the 1979 revolution? Is the unrest about political freedom or the absence of jobs or any real prospects for work? And what role are women playing in the movement toward democracy?

Professor Rejali is head of the Political Science Department at Reed. His courses include Comparative Revolutions and Iran and American Social Science. Mr. Eghtedari is a civil engineer and chair of the Steering Committee of the Iranian Human Rights Working Group in the U.S.
