Woman, Life, Freedom

Global action in solidarity with Iranian women & girls who are courageously demonstrating peacefully for their fundamental human rights.

For decades, gender inequality and discrimination against women have been legally enshrined in Iran.

Under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, Iranian women’s rights are severely restricted, a form of gender apartheid. Women must comply with the Islamic Republic’s mandatory hijab laws from the onset of puberty, and they are unequal in matters of marriage, divorce, custody, inheritance, and more. In the Fall of 2022, hundreds of protesters, including dozens of children, have been killed by Iranian authorities. These nationwide protests were triggered by the tragic death of 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini who died in police custody after being arrested by Iran’s “morality police” for failing to properly cover her hair. This is a critical moment for leaders in the international community to vocally and unequivocally demonstrate their support for women’s rights by standing in solidarity with Iranian women and girls.
