Iran: The Message of a Prominent Political Prisoner, on the Occasion of the International Women's Day
NCRI - The prominent political prisoner, Abolghasem Fouladvand in a message on the occasion of the International Women's Day stated: “we commemorate the International Women's Day while the Iran regime has always represented misogynistic conducts towards the women during the whole 38 years. They have actually disregarded women's rights through oppression and violence in my country."
The following is part of his letter:
"Khomeini initially committed the crime by forcing the veil or coining the motto of "wearing a headscarf or being an underdog". As soon as the Iran regime began to reign, the women got deprived of holding judiciary positions, working in the ministries or standing for the presidential nomination. The regime explicitly announced that the women take the low priority and they do not have human rights.
