On the International Women's Day, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said women were at the center of the nationwide uprising in January 2018, which shook the regime of the mullahs to the core. She added the 39-year history of this regime is a history of suppression of Iranian women, and year after year, misogynist laws have been increased and repressive measures against women have been intensified. The smallest demands of women in this regime cannot be implemented, because the echo of each of these demands in the ear of the mullahs is the same as overthrowing the regime.
