On International Women’s Day, on March 8, is it important to look at the misogynistic treatment of women under the Iranian Regime and to listen to Iranian women when they call out for regime change.

Since day one of this regime, the mullahs have eradicated women’s rights and their role in society, even under the supposed reformist presidents like Hassan Rouhani. Supposed moderate President Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani even laid out in a prayer sermon that men were smarter, braver, and less emotional than women.

Two female Azerbaijani Turkic activists have allegedly been attacked by Ministry of Intelligence agents in an effort to extract false confessions. One is now in the hospital with broken teeth and injured fingers.

Nasim Sadeghi and Hakimeh Ahmadi were arrested in late October by Ministry of Intelligence agents, and were given no reason for their arrests, said sources close to the women. It has also been reported that the pair were severely beaten.

Ahmadi’s husband Gholamreza Ghorbani said that Hakimeh is hospitalized at the Tabriz Army Hospital. Intelligence Ministry agents have demanded that he pay for her hospital treatment fees.
