How Iranian women rise up for freedom and equality in the face of an utterly misogynist mullahs’ regime in Iran was the topic of a global online conference held on Monday, March 8, marking International Women’s Day co-hosted by Women’s Committee of the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), alongside The International Committee for a Democratic Iran, and the British Committee for Iran Freedom.
A distinguished slate of dignitaries joined NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi, the keynote speaker at the event, in providing their take on the struggles of women across the globe, and especially those inside Iran and in the Iranian Resistance as their 42-year struggle against the mullahs continues with the aim of establishing a free, democratic and prosperous Iran where women’s rights are respected equally alongside men.
Women inside Iran are seen playing active roles in ongoing protests against the regime, especially in the numerous rounds of nationwide uprisings witnessed engulfing Iran from December 2017 to this day.
Also, a panel of 30 Members of Parliament and women’s rights activists from the UK and Europe urged their governments to put human rights at the forefront of Iran policy during the conference.
The cross-party speakers called on the UK and EU governments to work together to put pressure on the regime to release all political prisoners, prisoners of conscience, protesters, and dual citizens held under arbitrary charges in Iran, especially the women. Speakers urged the UK and EU to make economic and political relations and agreements with the regime in Tehran contingent upon verifiable improvements in human rights and women’s rights. They stressed that Iran stands on the brink of change as the regime has no solutions to any of the economic and social crises facing it and that growing popular dissent in the country rejects the theocracy in its entirety and demands regime change.
