Iranian Human rights lawyer sentenced to 18 years for promoting women's rights contrary to Islam

Human rights lawyer Soheila Hejab sentenced to 18 years in Qarchak prison over her peaceful activism to promote women's rights and freedom in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
According to an Iranian human rights group, IRAN HRM, "Civil rights activist Soheila Hejab was violently arrested after an appeals court session. She says the IRGC intelligence agents dragged her by pulling her hair, beat and punched her in the face before taking her to the notorious Qarchak prison."
Iranian prisons (torture camps) are full of innocent people imprisoned for their protests against gender apartheid in Iran.
Under Iranian strict modesty laws women are not allowed to dance, sing, show their hair in public or even leave home without the permission of the "male guardian".
It is well known that Iran is the world’s biggest jailer of Innocent women including journalists, rape victims, women's rights activities and Human rights lawyers.
Iran’s regime holds the infamous record of the world’s top executioner per capita. It also ranks first for most number of juvenile executions in the world. Women are also victims of the death penalty in Iran, with dozens of women hanged in public squares every year.
The regime in Iran uses the death penalty as a tool to suppress and silence a disgruntled society the majority of whom live under the poverty line, are unemployed and deprived of freedom of speech.
Please share this post to raise awareness of the brutal persecution of human rights activists and their families in Iran.
Sadly, the UN is turning a blind eye to Iran’s regime continued practice of unjustified executions and inhuman torture methods.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is an elected member of the U.N. Commission on Criminal Justice. Iran was also appointed to the UN Women's rights committee that judges complaints of women's rights violations.

• Stereotypical attitudes towards role of women.
• Violation of women's rights defenders' freedom of expression & assembly • Deaths & torture of women in custody.
• Impunity for violations of human rights of women.
