Activists: We will continue to organize protests in support of Iranian women


Protests in Iran after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, while she was detained in a police station, have cast a shadow over the reality of rights and freedoms in Iran and the Middle East. Women rights activists A24 interviewed stated their solidarity and support for the protests in Iran to restore women’s rights.

They told A24 they will continue to organize protests outside Iranian embassies and consulates in support of Iranian women, against practices and violations of the Iranian regime against women.

They added that movements in Iran and new slogans being raised in protests for the first time, such as “change and overthrow the regime,” give hope to Iranian people, especially women to gain the freedom they deserve.

Activists believe it is unlikely to obtain women’s rights and freedoms in Arab countries in the near future.
