A group of Iranian Bazaar merchants and businessmen in Tehran issued a declaration, laying emphasis on the role of young women and girls in all the scenes of the Iranian people’s struggle and paying tribute to those who gave their lives in this uprising.
In parts of this declaration, they said, “Iranian women fearlessly confront oppression and dictatorship. Today, unfortunately, women do not enjoy their minimum rights and they do not have the right to choose their own clothing. They are violently attacked and arrested in the streets. But these problems have not undermined Iranian women’s will and determination in fighting in step with their countrymen until until the clerical regime is overthrown.”
