London, 13 Mar - The health of a British aid worker, detained in Iran on spurious national security charges, has gone downhill so fast that she lost a significant amount of weight, is suffering from hair loss and is practically unable to walk.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 38, a British-Iranian citizen, was arrested when she was trying to return to Britain with her daughter Gabriella after visiting family in Iran last April.

She was held for five months without charges before being tried for attempting to overthrow the Iranian Regime and sentenced to five years in Evin prison.

London, 8 Mar - In commemoration of the International Women's Day, Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian Resistance made a speech about the role of women in dismantling the oppressive Iranian Regime.

She praised those women in Iran who are imprisoned for speaking their minds or promoting social change and assured them, that all members of the Iranian Resistance stand proudly by them.

London, 8 Mar - It’s hardly surprising that the Iranian Regime is misogynist; after all, they oppress religious minorities, people of different races, the LGBT community and political opponents (who are generally the ones advocating for fair, secular laws).

What was surprising was to hear the so-called moderate, President Hassan Rouhani, speak about women’s rights in Iran like he was somehow making things better; maybe he thinks that he’s doing his part for feminism by torturing and executing female political prisoners as well as male ones?

London, 6 Mar - In 2017 alone, at least two women who were taken into the Regime’s prisons and sexually abused have committed suicide.

Mahdis Mir Ghavami, a Kurdish engineer from Kermanshah in Western Iran, killed herself on January 24, after two days in prison, while Hananeh Shalir Farhadi, a 23-year-old political science student, killed herself after four months of imprisonment.
