Narges Mohammadi, a civil activist who has been detained in Evin Prison for the past two months, has written a letter expressing her protest regarding conditions inside the Iranian regime’s prisons.
There are 22 women in the women’s ward while 14 of whom are mothers. Five of these mothers have children under the age of 10 with them, she wrote.
“Is it wrong to have a 3-4 minute phone call twice or three times a week to hear the voice of one’s children, mothers and fathers? Do phone calls between mothers and their children disrupt national and state security? Or is this decision made to further punish women that have started criticizing the state?”
Following the last arrest made by Narges Mohammadi, to this day there have been many individuals and organization that have protested her arrest for the second time. National and international organizations, such as the Women Citizenship Center, Reporters Without Borders and the Denmark Pen Association have called for her release.
