Recent events have once again drawn attention to women’s rights abuses in Iran, a phenomenon that has been institutionalized in the very foundations and constitution of the clerical regime ruling the country since 1979. The recent spike in discrimination against women by the regime and regime-backed forces betrays Tehran’s fear of women, who are the driving force behind change in Iran and the fight against Islamic fundamentalism, the bedrock of the Iranian regime.

In recent weeks, over two dozen women across Iran have been subjected to a spate of hideous acid attacks, leaving them with permanent burns on their faces and bodies. One victim reportedly died of her injuries in Isfahan after having acid splashed on her face by state-affiliated gangs.
