The People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is a political group dedicated to bringing freedom and democracy to Iran.

They derive their political beliefs from a modern and tolerant version of Islam that is fully compatible with modern society – the exact opposite of the ruling mullahs’ Sharia Law, which is intolerant, extremist, genocidal, non-democratic, and misogynist – and the MEK believe that their interpretation is the true meaning of Islam.

This is the fourth and final piece in a series about the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

When we left off last time, the mullahs had stolen the 1979 Revolution from the MEK and the people of Iran and were instead using it to serve their own interests. Ruhollah Khomeini had returned from exile only to appoint Supreme Leader (essentially, naming himself king) and appoint the clergy to the government against the wishes of the Iranian People.

In an earlier piece, we covered how the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its president-elect Maryam Rajavi would improve the lives of Iranian women in 10 key areas ranging from employment to marriage to the legal system.

This piece will cover women’s participation in the political system in more detail.

In our earlier piece, we wrote that Maryam Rajavi believes that women should have equal rights to participate in the country's political leadership, including the formulation and implementation of government policy, the holding of public office, and the ability to perform all public functions at all levels of government.

There are ten areas that Maryam Rajavi and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) see as in need of improvement in terms of gender equality in Iran.

Let’s explore those ten areas and how Maryam Rajavi would tackle them in more detail.

1. Fundamental freedoms and rights

Maryam Rajavi believes that women should have the same human rights and fundamental freedoms as men and vows to ban any type of discrimination against women, in order to ensure that women are equal to men in all economic, social and political spheres.

The Iranian Resistance forces, united under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi, want to see the separation of religion and government in Iran.

Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has given many speeches advocating for an end to religious governance in Iran, which is in direct contrast to the theocratic Iranian Regime that uses Islam to oppress its own people.
