Urgent Action: Jailed for protesting forced veiling laws
Iranian women’s rights defenders Monireh Arabshahi, Yasaman Aryani and Mojgan Keshavarz have been arbitrarily detained in Shahr-e Ray prison, outside Tehran, since April 2019. They have been charged with offences including “inciting and facilitating corruption and prostitution” through promoting “unveiling”, solely for campaigning against abusive forced veiling laws. All are prisoners of conscience.
