Joy Behar told her co-hosts on ABC’s The View on Friday that they “should stand in solidarity in this country with men who are trying to control us with their abortion laws” while discussing the demonstrations in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini discussed.
Amini was allegedly beaten by police and died last week because of her hijab.
During a discussion of the protest and CNN’s Christiane Amanpour’s refusal to wear a headscarf for her scheduled interview with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, co-host Ana Navarro said: “Christiane Amanpour is an inspiration to me, to women in the world the whole world. There was a time when you didn’t see women covering international news and doing those kinds of interviews with international heads of state putting their feet in the fire. She’s been doing this for 30 years now. She is an anchor of international news. She’s a trailblazer and I think she’s aware of her role and the symbolism of what that means and I think it was an act of solidarity with what’s going on in Iran. We should all show solidarity with what is happening in Iran.”
Behar said, “Well, we should stand in solidarity in this country with men who are trying to control us with their abortion laws.”
Navarro said, “Let’s make that comparison.”
Behar said, “Why not?”
Navarro said, “Because those women are being killed over there.”
Behar said, “I’m not saying they’re equal. I’m just saying we need to watch what’s going on in our own country too, because these men will try to control women.”
Navarro said: “I agree, but for me these are very different conversations.”
