Iran: Free Ghoncheh, jailed for wanting to watch Volleyball

Ghoncheh Ghavami is imprisoned in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison just for asking for women to be able to go to volleyball matches.

In Iran, women have been banned from watching watching football since 1979. In 2012, they were stopped from watching volleyball too.

Ghoncheh took part in a peaceful protest on 20 June this year to ask that women be allowed to watch Iran v Italy that day. She was later arrested and has been in prison since, mostly in solitary confinement.
