Women’s rights in Iran

Atlanta, Georgia, USA – WEBWIRE

With the approval of the resolution proposed by the United States in the meeting of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, the Islamic Republic was expelled from the Women’s Commission of this organization with 29 votes in favor, 8 votes against and 16 abstentions.

Sequel of meeting aims to expel the Islamic Republic from the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and in response to the voices of Iran’s civil society and the systematic suppression of women and the violation of their rights during the 43 years of religious dictatorship, it shows the support of the international community for the rise of #women_of_life_freedom.

This uprising took place after the killing of #Mehsa_Amini by the Irshad patrol on September 16, 2022 and has continued until now. The global reflection of this revolution is due to the colorful presence of women and the young generation in a society with patriarchal rules and religious dictatorship, and the support of various communities. because it is clear to every free-thinking person that the freedom of a society goes beyond the freedom of women and their rights in the society.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has not considered the rights of women in society and family in any way by passing and implementing anti-women laws for over 43 years.

According to these laws, the value of women in Iran is half that of men. For example, the martyrdom of a woman is half that of a man, and her share of inheritance is considered half that of her brothers. This is also true for dowry, and if a man kills a woman, the victim’s family must pay half of the woman’s dowry to execute the sentence of retribution for the murderer.

According to these laws, if a father kills a woman’s child, the mother is not considered the guardian and cannot appear in court as a plaintiff because the father is considered as the owner and custody of his child.

Women do not have the right to divorce, and the law only gives women the right to divorce if the man is a prisoner or a drug addict, and that is why women are often forced to accept the most difficult conditions and physical and mental harm from their husbands. and this is even if they get a divorce. In case of separation of husband and wife, the custody of the children is with the father, and this becomes more bitter when the husband dies for any reason, the husband’s family will have the right to take care of their grandchildren more than the children’s mother.

In many small towns and suburbs and sometimes poor society, girls are married to older men at a very young age, and they experience child marriage and mother’s child in their childhood, and this is while the law not only does not defend it, but also it also promotes and encourages marriages. In the Islamic republic’s religious authoritarian regime, a woman is only a means of fertility and continuation of the generation and taking care of men’s needs.

Women in Iran need their husband’s consent to apply for obtaining a passport, and this goes as far as to travel and leave the country, to work, to be employed, and to participate in any profession or skill, they need written consent from their husband or their guardian.

According to the ruling Islamic laws in Iran, women cannot attend sports stadiums and some public places with men. Also, women’s voices are prohibited, and no woman can sing in public gatherings.

Iranian women do not have the right to choose even about their veil and hijab, and any freedom, including freedom of opinion and freedom of expression, is nipped in the bud. According to Islamic and Sharia laws, men in Iran can have multiple wives and they consider it their inalienable right, while honor killings happen all over the country. When a man who considers himself the owner or guardian of a woman, kills her; after passing a very short prison term, he will return to the society.

But in a society with such strict laws and so much prejudice that prevails in most families, free girls have been brought up who make up 60% of the country’s student population at high levels of education and today their voices have become the echoes of the world. Delicate bodies but with exemplary courage and bravery stand in front of oppressive forces. They demand their right and freedom for their life and femininity with a loud voice. Even though they know that they may be killed or arrested or subjected to the most terrible physical and mental tortures and rape, and sometimes they die under torture or due to bleeding after rape; or they may be sentenced to death in court for the crime of fighting, and being an enemy of God.

Dr. Shohreh Ghasemi said: “Iranian women are determined and perhaps their resistance made the international community decide to expel the Islamic Republic from the United Nations Commission on Women, and expel this most anti-feminist government from a place it did not deserve to be in.”

The decision that the women have taken for freedom alongside the men of this land with the unity and integrity of Iran and are moving in the direction of the revolution and victory can become the basis for great and significant changes in the whole world and bring peace and tranquility to the region and the world. This revolution can be a message for the liberation of women in the Middle East from the yoke of patriarchy.

Sanaz Hakimi Said: “This change requires the cooperation and support of the international communities so that the Islamic Republic is expelled from all international arenas and the Revolutionary Guards are sanctioned as terrorists. Also, European countries should expel Iranian ambassadors and deport them to Iran and demand their ambassadors as well. Do not enter into any agreements or transactions with Iran (whether under the JCPOA or otherwise). Because the income will be spent on domestic and foreign terrorists without affecting people’s livelihood.”

Increasing the access of the Iranian people to the free internet, will prevent the silence of these people’s voices and, as a result, severe repression, and express the value of women, women’s rights, freedom and human life, the international community with all-out support of the movement. The freedom-loving people of Iranian women will prove that they are committed to human rights everywhere on the on the earth.

“The international community should accompany and support this popular uprising that introduces the world’s first women’s revolution so that the blood of Iran’s children is not trampled any more,” Dr. Shohreh Ghasemi said.


“We the women in the Middle East are alike.
So alike that occasionally I feel I’ve left my hair behind in Kabul
and with a stone in hand, I’m standing by the Palestinian borderline
Or sometimes even I sweep the Gulan heights with water.
We the women in the middle east are alike
So alike that occasionally I suffer the burning sensation of acid in the streets of Tehran on my skin
And give birth to a headless baby in the deserts of Damascus
We the women in the middle east.
I do not have as many reasons to live as to die, but yet with faces hidden behind burghas
We are looking for freedom.”
