The NCRI Women’s Committee welcomes the Nobel Committee’s attention to the struggle of Iranian women for freedom and equality against the religious and misogynistic dictatorship ruling Iran and its awarding of the Peace Prize to political prisoner Narges Mohammadi.
This action is against the religious fascism ruling Iran, which has subjugated all women in the past four decades and deprived them of their fundamental rights. The regime has arrested, tortured, and executed tens of thousands of Iranian women.
The NCRI President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, congratulated Mrs. Mohammadi and recalled the Iranian Resistance’s repeated calls for her release. She once again urged the International Community to intervene and secure the release of Mrs. Mohammadi and other political prisoners, especially women.
Mrs. Rajavi reiterated, “Beyond the symbolic gestures, the time has come to adopt a decisive policy against the ruling regime and its oppressive measures against women. The world can no longer deny Iranian women’s role in the struggle against the regime. We are facing a generation of combatant and rebellious women in Iran, many of whom are in prison.”
