Sahar Gholamali, a member of the Iranian Resistance, recounted her life story. It can be read in full on the NCRI Women’s Committee website.

Suppression and oppression has been a part of her life since she was born, literally, as she was born in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran during the eighties.

Her parents were both arrested for their political and social activities as they were supporters of the opposition Mojahedin (PMOI/MEK). They believed in freedom and opposed the regime that had established a religious dictatorship in the country.

London, 8 Sep - On Wednesday, a day after female lawmakers were permitted to attend the World Cup qualifier against Syria, the website of Iran's main stadium was hacked. This came with a demand that women be allowed to watch football matches.

During Tehran's Azadi stadium last-minute equaliser by the visiting team, at least two female lawmakers were present. This is believed to be the first time Iranian women were allowed to watch a men's match since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

ISNA news agency reported on the next day that the stadium website had been hacked, and a banner appeared for several hours across the front page, saying, “Let Iranian women enter their stadiums”.

London, 5 Jul - In many movements for social change or social justice, women are there doing a lot of the grunt work and getting none of the praise.

Thankfully, this is not the case in the Iranian Resistance’s struggle for freedom. Dedicated to gender equality and with a female President at the helm of the movement, the Resistance makes it clear that women are not only an integral part of the movement, they’re also highly visible within the movement.

London, 5 Sep - Iran blamed a "technical glitch" for allowing female football fans to buy tickets to watch the men's national team play Syria.

It seemed like the Regime’s sexist ban on women attending football matches when men are playing had been lifted, on Saturday, when the option appeared for women's tickets for Iran’s World Cup qualifier against Syria.
