    Iran Regime Hangs Another Woman; 98 Women Executed During Rouhani’s Presidency 

    Somayyeh Shahbazi Jahrouii hanged for defending herself against rape

    A woman who defended herself against rape was hanged this week in Iran, according to the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).


    Somayyeh Shahbazi Jahrouii, 33, had been imprisoned for six years. She had committed murder in self-defense against rape, according to her relatives.

    Somayyeh Shahbazi Jahrouii was hanged at dawn on Wednesday, December 4, 2019, in Sepidar Prison of Ahvaz, capital of Khuzestan Province. 

    Her death brings to 98 the number of women executed by Iran’s regime since Hassan Rouhani took office as President in 2013.

    Iran’s regime is the world’s top executioner of women. So far in 2019, it has executed at least 11 women, more than it had done in previous years. It had executed at least six women in 2018, 10 in 2017 and nine in 2016. 

    The regime has executed at least 4000 people under Rouhani. 

    Because of the regime’s failure to categorize deliberate murders according to their degree, anyone convicted of murder in Iran is sentenced to death, regardless of their motives. Many of the women convicted of murder in Iran are themselves victims of violence against women and have committed the murders in self-defense. 

    Women are playing a leading role in the latest Iran protests calling for regime change. The regime is carrying out a major crackdown to stifle the protests which began in mid-November. At least 1000 protesters have been killed, while another 4000 have been injured and 12000 have been arrested, according to information collated by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), or Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK)

    The NCRI has identified at least 24 women among protesters who have been killed by the regime. 

    In many instances, the regime has used machine guns, helicopters, and tanks to clamp down on protesters. 

    In a message to the Iranian nation this week, Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi said women are a force for change and will defeat the mullahs’ reactionary dictatorship. 

    “Iran’s cities are rising up one after the other and everywhere; women actively participate, leading and supporting the protesters. We had already said that women are the force for change and will defeat the mullahs’ reactionary and religious tyranny.”  

    “The arisen women of Iran have come to the battlefield to bring down the regime,” said Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI.

    Be the voice of #IranProtests! Join campaign calling for #FreeAllProtesters! 

    Twitter storm

    Time: Dec 1, 2019 9:00 PM CET/3:00 PM EST/ 12:00 PM PST

    Call for immediate release of #IranProtests detainees

    #FreeAllProtesters

    In November people across Iran took to the streets in a new wave of protests larger and with clearer demands than ever seen in last 4 decades. The protests have now spread throughout 184 cities, which has come at a high price with over 4,000 wounded and death toll surpassing 450. Over 10,000 people have also been detained, most facing imminent threat of torture, forced confessions and execution.

    From Rouhani to Khamenei, all called for a brutal suppression, while cutting off the internet to hide their brutality from the international eye. In recent days officials of the regime have come to the scene to justify the brutal suppression.

    This week, Abolfazl Bahrami sated on national television: protesters must “suffer to death, they must be hung in public to serve as an example to others… their arms and limbs must be amputated; their right hand and left leg. God save Mr Raisi (current head of judiciary and member of death committees in 1988 massacre) for us, we can’t say they were young and acted in the spur of the moment, no one should be forgiven.”

    He goes on to add, “don’t whine tomorrow if we execute 300-400 people, it would be justified if we kill 10,000 to regain order.”

    On Nov 18th, the state-run daily Kayhan stated, “Judges find execution via hanging definitive for the leaders of recent riots.”

    Despite the public threats and acknowledgment of mass arrests and brutal crackdown, the international community has remained silent for the most part. It is critical for us to be their voice and prevent further bloodshed and execution of protesters.

    The demands of the Iranian people for change has never been more vocal than today. But now more than ever they need us to be their voice!

    Abused at Work: The Miserable Employment Conditions of Iran’s Women 

    These days, major powers shed light on the Iranian regime’s destructive and provocative behavior in the Middle East and across the world. However, it should not be forgotten that the Iranian people are the first victims of this regime.

    It is also significant that the Iranian regime’s constitution is based on a misogynistic theory and classifies women as second-class citizens in society.

    In fact, Iranian women suffer from mullahs’ inhuman policies twice as much as men. In this regard, it is worth reminding that Iranian authorities are the top executioners of women. They legally count woman’s testimony as worth half of that of a man. The regime’s misogynistic rules extended to all sectors of life, including employment.

    Iran enjoys a 24-million strong employed population. This population consists of 20.33 million men and 4.42 million women. In other words, the share of men is 82% and women’s share is 18%. In the spring of 2019, 127,000 men joined the employed population. In the same period, 170,000 women were removed from employment. The share of women from the growing employed population was -0.6%.

    Mrs. Sedigheh Shahrokhi, a women rights activist, said: “It is notable that the Iranian government not only in its official advertising creates the impression that the women’s main role is housekeeping, but also how have women’s working conditions have toughened to the point that women prefer to not work in such a humiliating situation to save their dignity. But one of the prominent reasons for the reduction of women’s employed population is that in service and production units, women’s wages are much lower than men’s.

    On October 6, state-run ILNA news agency noted, “In almost all kinds of work, women receive lower wages than men… although in the bad economic conditions when the monthly payment is not enough, many women prefer to leave their job and sit in their homes.”

    Iran’s Prisons Are ‘Hell on Earth’ 

    Iran’s Prisons Are ‘Hell on Earth’

    12 October 2019

    According to global statistics, Iran occupied the sixth place in the world in terms of the most number of prisoners. Yet Iran ranks 19th globally in terms of population. Yet the situation in Iran’s prisons is unique because of the methods of torture and intimidation, especially toward political detainees.

    After Ebrahim Raisi was appointed Iran’s Judiciary Chief earlier this year, he completely transformed prisons into centers of torture and forced disappearances, according to sources in Iran.

    A report from inside the Karaj Central Prison reveals:

    The density of prisoners in the prison cells

    The capacity of the halls of the central prison in Karaj is for 200 persons, but with the transfer of large numbers of prisoners to the halls, they have increased the population to 700. Due to the lack of beds in the cells, many inmates are sleeping on the ground and on cardboard boxes. Prison hygiene is very low and the environment is dirty and unhealthy.

    Mentally ill prisoners and those with hepatitis live with other prisoners without any treatment and may transmit the disease to other prisoners.

    Shortage and lack of water

    Lack of hygiene is exacerbated by daily water cuts. Prison water is disconnected every day for four hours from 2-6 pm. When the prisoners protested, the prison chief responded by saying, “Go thank God that the electricity is not cut off.”

    Threats and repression, consequences of prisoners’ protest in prison

    Inmates who protest against the deteriorating prison situation face consequences including ostensible ‘accidents’ or ‘suicide’. While the prison chief and wardens control the prison, they repress every protest and beat the prisoners in various ways.

     The forceddisappearance of prisoners

    Any protest that includes more than one prisoner is considered a riot. Protesters are killed very easily or severely wounded with knives. According to some witnesses, on occasions, prisoners do not return after being thrown into solitary confinement. The wardens explain that the prisoners had committed suicide.

    Distribution and trafficking of drugs by prison chief

    Prison chiefs and guards have transformed the prison into drug distribution centers.

    Starving prisoners

    On the other hand, wardens have cut the food of the prisoners by a quarter. The size of the bread is getting smaller and the prisoners are not getting proper meals. The prison shop has bought the “Sangang” bread from outside of the prison, and it sells bread to the inmates at a price of 20,000 rials. Prisoners have to ask their families for money to buy their daily bread. For example, the food that goes into jail is a small amount of boiled pink rice with no meat. But the jailers say that this is rice with meat.

    Prisoners’ costs are borne by their families

    Prisoners are not given any sanitation supply and have to pay for it by themselves. For a prisoner who has no savings, no income and no wealth and has been previously the head of the family, it is a daily shame and torment. So the prison costs are all heavily burdened on his family members. In addition to being a member of the prisoner’s family, they must seek to cover the costs of the prisoner which is the duty of the prison organization.

    Video conference for prisoners on trial

    Prisoners are also currently being tried by video conferencing rather than being transferred to a court. In this way, the prisoner is not able to defend himself in the presence of his lawyer. The guards cite the lack of soldiers for transferring prisoners to court.

    Humanitarian conditions worsening in Iran’s prisons 

    Harsh condition of prisons in Iran

    Iran, October 12, 2019—Reports coming from inside Iran pertain to mounting pressure against Iranian prisoners and worsening humanitarian and human rights conditions inside Iran’s prisons. In recent months, the regime has resorted to various measures to cause fear in society and dissuade people from joining protests that are ongoing in different parts of Iran.

    These measures coincide with the appointment of Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s chief of judiciary. Raisi was one of the key figures in the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, most of them members and supporters of the prominent Iranian opposition movement the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

    The regime has effectively turned its prisons into centers for the torture and annihilation of prisoners.

    The situation in Karaj Central Prison

    One of the facilities where the conditions for prisoners have worsened is Karaj Central Prison. Every hall in the prison has the capacity for 200 people. But prison authorities have effectively packed 700 people in each hall. Due to lack of space and beds in cells, many of the prisoners are forced to sleep on the ground and on cardboards.

    Prisoners with mental illness and contagious diseases such as hepatitis have been abandoned with no medical care, and they’re mixed with other prisoners, causing the spread of dangerous diseases among the population of the facility.

    The Karaj Central Prison also has very poor sanitary conditions. Prisoners are faced with water shortages on a regular basis. Every day, from 2 pm to 6 pm, the facility’s water is cut off. According to reports, when prisoners protested the situation, the prison’s chief said, “You’re lucky that we haven’t cut off electricity.”

    Prisoners are also required to pay for soap and other hygiene products. This puts further pressure, who have no means to earn money and must rely on their families to pay for their expenses. 

    Food rations in Karaj Central Prison have diminished to a quarter of what they used to be. Even the bread has become smaller than before and the prisoners are always hungry. The prison has a local store, but it sells its goods at several times the real price. Prisoners must get money from their families to buy food from the store. But many of the prisoners who were faced with economic pressure before coming to prison don’t have the means to buy anything from the store.

    The prison authorities consider any protest that involves two or more people as a riot and suppress it brutally. If the prisoners persist in their protests to the poor conditions in the Karaj Central Prison, they face grim consequences that are set up to look like an “accident” in the clinic, a “suicide,” or a fight with other prisoners.

    The prison chief and wardens have agents among prisoners, whom they use to suppress prisoners who do not abide by their brutal rules. These so-called agents violently assault any prisoner their bosses instruct them to. They use knives and sharp objects to attack and kill prisoners.

    Prison authorities are also directly involved in the distribution of narcotics among prisoners.

    One of the new measures authorities of Karaj Central Prison have implemented is the remote sentencing of prisoners. Instead of taking prisoners to court, prison authorities perform trials through video conferencing software. This way, prisoners have no access to their lawyers.

    Pressure against inmates in Urmia Central Prison

    The situation in other Iranian prisons isn’t any better. Recently, the prisoners of Urmia Central Prison protested to the canceling of meetings. The chief of the facility said that starting from Saturday, daily meetings for political prisoners will be canceled and replaced with weekly meetings. This regime authority claimed that the measure is meant to prevent the entrance of narcotics into Urmia Central Prison.

    Political prisoners protested to this measure and threatened to go on strike. Fearing the situation spinning out of control, prison authorities backed down from their decisions and resumed meetings for prisoners.

    DOZENS OF YOUNG IRANIANS ARRESTED FOR ATTENDING PARTIES 

    The Iranian regime is known for its unreasonable crackdown on what it considers unacceptable behaviour. Over the past few days, the country’s security forces stormed a number of mixed gender parties in the city of Sari in the north of the country.

    As a result of these raids, 35 young Iranians were arrested. State media outlets have reported that 10 of these young people are women.

    The people of Iran have no freedom in most parts of their lives. To attend a party or celebration in which both sexes are present is just one such example. Regime officials themselves, of course, are not subject to such mistreatment.

    A state media outlet had reported that the week previous to these latest arrests, there were a number of other raids in which more than 52 people were arrested. A source had told the agency that those arrested were young and dressed inappropriately.

    The people of Iran have to live by very strict rules and moral codes and the regime does not hesitate to send agents out to the street to carry out mass arrests. Young people have been arrested for having hairstyles considered “too Western” or for dressing in a way that the regime does not approve of.

    The Iranian regime also obliges women to be veiled in public. This is something that the people of Iran, both men and women, oppose. It is not the practice of wearing a veil that the people do not like – it is the fact that they are obliged to dress how the regime wants them to – the choice is out of their hands.

    Women are not considered equal beings by the Iranian regime and it is certain that the authorities see them as a threat. The main opposition to the Iranian regime, the PMOI or MEK, is led by a woman and women have important roles and positions at all levels of the organisation.

    At the end of July, the notorious IRGC announced that 20 women had been arrested. An IRGC official explained that it had “dismantled” a network of women that has the aim of “promoting a Western lifestyle”.

    Over the past few years, in an attempt to get a handle on the widespread dissent that is present across the whole country, the regime is ordering crackdowns on the people. However, this strategy is not working for the regime because it is only making the people even more determined for freedom, human rights and democracy.

    The people support the maximum pressure campaign that the United States is putting Iran under because they know that the more pressure the regime is subjected to, the sooner the regime will collapse. The people want the European governments to stop appeasing the regime because it is doing nothing but prolonging its existence, and by extension prolonging the misery of the people.

    Furthermore, Europe prides itself on its respect of human rights and democracy, so it must ensure that it does not appease countries that ignore these core values.

    Shameful: Appoint of the Iran regime, the most misogynist in the world, to join the UN Women’s Rights Committee! 

    A member of Iran’s morality patrols in Tehran admonishes a young woman

    Masoud Dalvand(Freedom Star):

    A shocking news. A dark day in the history of the United Nations, a black day for human rights, a dark spot on the forehead of the Women’s Rights Committee at the United Nations .

    Appoint of the Iran regime, the most misogynist in the world, to join the United Nations Women’s Rights Committee!

    Really with hearing this, all human rights defenders and women’s rights were very upset.

    How do you appoint the regime to join to the UN Women’s rights committee? this regime condemned for the violations human rights and especially women’s rights in in Iran and has been sentenced to tens of times in the United Nations Human Rights Committee for the violation of human rights in Iran.

    Morality police arrest woman for improper hijab

    Is not this insult to human understanding? Is not this a terrible violation of women’s rights?

    The fact is that women’s rights are not separated from human rights and women’s rights are the most basic and fundamental human rights. So it’s important to pay attention to any event in this regard.
    An informative article has been published on
    the official website of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, which is useful for women’s rights defenders.

    Iran Regime Is Lying to You About Female Equality in Iran

    Moral police agents arrest a young woman for not complying with the veil

    By Hamideh Taati

    In February, the Iranian Regime started bragging about a supposed increase in female literacy and increased numbers of women pursuing higher education, heralding it as one of the mullah’s most significant accomplishments over the past 40 years.

    But, as always with the mullahs, it’s important to look below the surface. The Regime wants you to believe that Iran is a great place for women, but they are obscuring the awful repression of women under the mullahs.

    In Iran, women are systemically deprived of their rights from birth, whether it’s being:

    • deprived of an education

    • legally married off from the age of nine

    • prevented from entering male-dominated classes/workspaces

    • forced to wear the hijab to protect their “modesty”

    • prevented from accessing the workforce

    • not allowed to travel without the consent of their closest male relative

    • needing their husband’s permission to work

    • forced to remain married to an abusive man

    The mullahs could do something to stop this, but they refuse. Indeed, they were recently given the opportunity to raise the marriageable age for girls to 15, but they refused, and they’ve even implied that reporting sexual assault is a crime because it raises “public anxiety”.

    The ever-increasing levels of poverty and deprivation in Iran, caused because of decades of corruption and mismanagement by the Iranian Regime, is only making the situation worse for women. Some are being forced out of their jobs to preserve employment opportunities for men, some are being forced into prostitution to survive, and some are being married off as children to provide their families with money and reduce the number of people that they need to care for, in essence, fathers selling their daughters’ virginities.

    Women cannot even expect justice under the law, because they are subjected to intense scrutiny for reporting crimes like rape or domestic abuse, with the burden of proof falling squarely of the woman’s shoulders. Women also face assault, including acid attacks, from the “morality” police for failing to comply with the forced hijab.

    All of this oppression leads many women to self-harm or even take their own lives. When do we say that enough is enough and advocate for the rights of the Iranian women to overthrow the Regime? Iranian women are being systematically discriminated against and will continue to be so for as long as the mullahs remain in charge. Therefore, the Regime should be removed from power.

    Syrian Network for Human Rights calls for the release of all detained Syrian women 

    Masoud Dalvand(Freedom Star):

    On World Women’s Day, reports of repression, torture and imprisonment of women who are in Syria under the bloodthirsty dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad are very uncomfortable.
    This dictatorial regime, such as its supporter in the region, the religious and criminal dictatorship of the mullahs in Iran, whose main nature is their misogyny idiology, continue to the inhumane punishments against the Syrian liberators women.
    The official website of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) has reported on the situation of Syrian women, quoting Syria’s network of human rights, to find out about the status of Syrian women and efforts to support them.

    Syrian Network for Human Rights calls for the release of all detained Syrian women

    March 9, 2019 – The Syrian Network for Human Rights on Friday, March 8th issued a statement to mark the Women’s Day calling for the release of 7,721 women who have been detained by the Assad regime.

    The statement reads: “sexual exploitation of female inmates in prisons is continuing. At least half million people including 13,500 women are held in Assad’s notorious prisons.”

    Syrian Network for Human Rights said many dissidents in Assad prisons have been either killed under torture or have been executed.

    Syrian Network for Human Rights is an independent, neutral, non-governmental, non-profit human rights organization, which aims to document the ongoing human rights violation in Syria.

    A glance at the abysmal human rights situation in Iran – December 2018 

    this year, human rights day marks the 70th anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights

    Freedom Star: A brief report with a video on the human rights situation in Iran in 2018 has been published by the Iran Human Rights Monitor in YouTube, which provides useful and brief information on the horrific human rights violations in the Mullahs dictatorial regime.

    The year of 2018, Human Rights Day marked the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being.

    The people in Iran, however, are deprived of their most basic rights due to the horrendous violations of human rights committed by the clerical regime ruling the country. This oppression culminates in horrific scenes of public hangings, floggings, and even limb amputations.

    Prisons are overwhelmed with inmates, and conditions are intolerable and inhumane. Political prisoners, specifically, are subjected to horrendous mistreatment by the authorities.

    Iran’s judicial and security organs systematically wage a vicious crackdown on human rights defenders, lawyers, women’s and civil rights activists, teachers and labor activists, students, journalists and online media activists in blatant disregard of international and domestic standards. Hundreds of activists are imprisoned for peacefully exercising their rights. Here is a glance on the regime’s record in 2018.

    It must be stressed that the figures cited in this report have been compiled from official sources or from reliable non-governmental sources inside Iran who risked their lives to obtain the data. Therefore, they should be considered as minimums due to lack of transparency and censorship on the part of the Iranian regime and the absence of free access to information under the clerical regime.

    The Iranian regime has a dismal report card of at least 285 executions as of December 2017, including the execution of four women and six individuals who were sentenced to death for crimes they allegedly committed as children.

    An estimated 8,000 arbitrary arrests were made in the course of the month-long protests in January. At least 58 were killed during the 2018 protests and 12 jailed protesters murdered under torture. Iran must understand its atrocious crimes will not go unpunished.

    While more strong measures against Tehran are necessary, emphasis should be placed on Tehran’s human rights violations. The sanctions adopted by the US targeting institutions which have quashed dissent and are heavily involved in human rights violations, are welcome.

    Iran Human Rights Monitor urges the international community to hold the mullahs accountable for their crimes against humanity, and stand by the Iranian people in their struggle to achieve their basic human rights.

    The program will be broadcasted by Iran Freedom website and its social media. I invite all international journalists and news websites and supporters of Iran’s freedom to see the conference and support it with the press reflection and also by social media. Supporting and conveying the voice of this conference is helping to bring the voice of the Iranian people, which has been for near a year, has raised to protests against religious dictatorship across Iran.
