Monireh and Yasaman

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?

Our fight for 
 women's rights

Whether it’s protecting female campaigners from violence and harassment or fighting for abortion reform – Amnesty International stand up for women’s rights, wherever they’re denied. 

Over the years, our campaigning has helped change sexist laws and free thousands of unjustly imprisoned women. 

Amnesty International is a global movement of 7 million people and together, we have the power to defend human rights and stand with those whose rights are being denied.

We investigate and expose human rights abuses. We lobby governments and inspire people to campaign for change. And we succeed – but we can’t do it without you. Will you make a monthly Direct Debit gift to Amnesty International UK and help stand up for the rights of women everywhere?

All donations go to support Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust.
