Iran Protests

Feminists and WHRDs Detained - Report 5

The feminist uprising in Iran has now turned into a revolution, with women and schoolgirls at the forefront of the nationwide protests. Security forces continue to arrest protesters and rights defenders, including scores of WHRDs, student activists, civil society actors, and journalists on a daily basis. In this report, the fifth in a series, FEMENA has documented the arrests of WHRDs, bringing the number of those documented to 118. We call on international organizations and the UN to take note of these WHRDs and continue to press for their release.
