Execution of women – Iran, world’s record holder of execution of women

The Iranian regime is the world’s top record holder of per capita executions. The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has compiled the names of these women in a list.
The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran had also previously mentioned that many of the women executed by the mullahs’ regime are themselves victims of domestic violence against women and have acted in self-defense.
The Iranian regime open-handedly uses the death penalty as a form of punishment. In many cases and in a discriminatory manner this punishment is carried out against the religious and ethnic minorities, political dissidents, and women.
In 2019, the mullahs’ regime hanged 16 women in tandem with increasing suppression and executions in Iran. In December 2019, alone, six women were executed by the regime in various Iranian prisons.
Many women are currently awaiting execution in prison. Some of these women are being held in Qarchak Prison on the death row. These women are mostly mothers and have several children.
Political prisonerGolrokh Ebrahimi Iraee wrote in a letter on July 27, 2019, about women who were sentenced to death for murder, saying, “In meeting women convicted of murder, I learned that a large percentage of them had murdered their husbands —instantly or based on a pre-meditated plan—after years of being humiliated, insulted, battered and even tortured by them and because of being deprived of their right to divorce. Although, they consider themselves criminals but are convinced that if any of their repeated appeals for divorce had been granted, they would not have committed such a crime.”
