Iran : women get 55 years in prison for promoting unveiling

Three women have been charged with 'inciting prostitution' for not wearing veils and sentenced to 55 years in prison between them.

A video went viral of the three women, not wearing veils, handing out flowers to female passengers on a train in Tehran.

Weeks later, Monireh, Yasaman and Mojgan were arrested and have faced intense interrogation, solitary confinement and abuse.
Sign the petition calling on Iran’s Head of the Judiciary to revoke their charges and release them immediately.
