The event was a gathering of support for the fight towards parity. Many of the speakers concurred that the voice of women was essential in overcoming Islamic fundamentalism.

Crackdown of women in Iran

London, 6 Sep - Eleven months after the arrest of Nahid Gorji in Mashhad, northeastern Iran, and considering her decreasing psychological conditions while in detention, there is still no precise information about the status of her dossier and the charges raised against her, the main Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has reported.

Iran has impounded tens of thousands of cars since March because women inside the vehicles had not properly covered their hair with a headscarf, Tehran’s traffic police said Tuesday.

“Over the past eight months, more than 40,000 cases of bad hijab [headscarf] have been dealt with”, said Brig. Gen. Teymour Hosseini, quoted by the state-run ISNA news agency.

On Saturday, March 7, a grand event was held in Berlin titled “For Tolerance and Equality against Fundamentalism and Misogyny” in the light of International Women’s Day and the serious issues concerning women rights throughout the world. The gathering discussed, in detail, the danger posed by Islamic Fundamentalism to human rights in general and women rights particularly.
