Iran: A woman publicly flogged

The misogynic Iranian regime publicly flogged a female prisoner on April 27 in Golpayegan County, Esfahan Province. The religious fascism ruling Iran has intensified repression in recent weeks to control the society and as usual women are bearing the brunt of this pressure and repression.

Accordingly, Tehran’s suppressive security forces announced on April 16 a new round of repression upon the pretext of battling mal-veiling: “Since this morning, police officers in the form of various patrols have been deployed in various sections of the capital and will confront mal-veiling and lack of hijab inside vehicles…” (ISNA state news agency – April 16).
