There are many restrictions laid upon women by the Islamic dictators in Tehran. The clerical regime has ratified the human rights bill but they do not give any citizen human rights, especially women. Women are treated as second-class citizens and there are no improvements in sight. As the presidential election are approaching in Iran the regime cracks down even harder on women to prevent any protests.
The bans on women can be described as discriminating at best but are really old men’s way of holding on to their crumbling power. As women’s power are growing stronger in Iran the regime is putting more bans on women to try to put the women in chains. Some of the bans are weird, women are not allowed to ride bicycles because it threatens their chastity? It is also forbidden for women to wear boots over their pants. It is forbidden for women to wear clothes that show their body curves. It is forbidden for women to show even a tiny strand of hair outside the hijab which is compulsory, women are encouraged to cover not only their hair but also their faces. A girl is not allowed to object if her father decides to marry her of at the age of 9. Women are also discouraged from taking an education instead of marrying at the age of 9. Girls should be allowed to decide for themselves whether to marry or take an education.
Iranian women are not allowed to divorce a violent husband, only the men are allowed to file for divorce. The list of bans on women is long and it is getting longer. The mullahs are aware of that it will be the power of women that will be their downfall and they are terrified of the strength of women.
The NCRI have a woman as president-elect and she has been fighting for freedom for 40 years. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi is still strong and her strength frightens the mullahs so much that they are trying to get MEK/PMOI listed as terrorists and are spreading fake news and info about the largest opposition organization that fight about 40 years for freedom and democracy in Iran, but the world are no longer fooled by their lies, the world is now aware of that it is the regime that is the terrorists.
The regime is practicing medieval punishments against both men and women. Stoning is one of these cruel punishments, amputation is one other horrible punishment. The mullahs have no respect for human lives and especially women. Women are considered property by the mullahs and are not even regarded as human beings. The only solution for Iranian women is a regime change, we must get a regime that is governed by human rights, equal rights for men and women and by justice. The regime claims that their justice system is very good but we have been witness to the execution of a young man before he was sentenced and the culprits were not punished. Iranian women need a government that grants them equal rights under the law and a government that is striving for freedom and democracy for all Iranians.
