Iran Protests

Feminists and WHRDs Detained - Report 6

It has been over two months since the start of the “Women, Life, Freedom” uprising in Iran. Based on credible reports, over 170 WHRDs have been arrested so far, but these figures are conservative as not all arrests are reported due to fear of repercussions. Through five reports since the start of the protests, FEMENA documented 118 arrests of WHRDs, including female university students. The current report highlights cases of 30 more WHRDs, bringing the total of cases documented to 148. While a small portion of those arrested have been temporarily released on bail, their cases pending trial, the majority of WHRDs arrested continue to remain in prison in harsh conditions.
