Tehran, Iran, Jun. 13 – State Security Forces (SSF) cracked down on a peaceful demonstration by thousands of Iranian women in Tehran.

Male and female security agents used truncheons and teargas to attack the women who had gathered in 7 Tir Square demanding equal rights.

“Put an end to misogyny”, the women chanted. There were also chants of “freedom, freedom”, “we are human beings but have no rights”, and “we want equal rights”.

One report said that the demonstration grew to more than 5,000 people but the protestors were forced to disperse into nearby streets because of the heavy government crackdown.

The following photos of the protest were emailed to Iran Focus by readers:
