From Australia to Jordan and from Berlin to Ethiopia events took place in all corners of the globe to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Plat form for Action (Beijing + 20).

The grounds for these crimes were prepared in previous months as news came out of new legalized gender segregation in municipalities, the formation of repressive police to control women’s veiling, the reduction of women’s rights in their private lives and a step-up in executions under the so-called “moderate” Rouhani government.

We still have no information of their whereabouts...

We witnessed the blatant face-off between the mullahs’ regime against Iranian women and repeated positions taken by Iranian officials to impose mandatory hijab and gender segregation in offices and public areas in the month of August. This began with gender segregation being imposed in the Tehran municipality and this measure is now spreading...

The month of July was a month of increased pressure on women as a result as gender segregation and the clampdown on women under the pretext of “bad hijab” became the main topic covered by the media.
