Help volunteers like sarah and sean

Right now, Monireh and her daughter Yasman are locked up in jail.

They were sentenced to 16 years in prison after a video went viral of them peacefully protesting against Iran’s laws forcing women to wear the veil.

They were charged with inciting ‘corruption and prostitution’ and have faced intense interrogation, solitary confinement and abuse.

Deciding whether or not to wear a veil should be an individual choice – not a criminal offence. Will you help by giving a monthly gift?
