Iranian women play an important role in the Iranian opposition’s struggle against the Iranian regime. Thousands of these women, inside the country and abroad, joined the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (also known as the Mojahedin-e-Khalq, MEK or PMOI) to struggle for freedom and justice. MEK women asserted their powerful determination by resisting against the mullahs’ torturers and executioners. Thousands of these women stood firm to the edge of death and so the Iranian woman became as the symbol of the struggle and resistance against the Iranian religious dictatorship.
