Women’s Rights are Human Rights

The UN Commission on the Status of Women is meeting in New York City this week. Although Iran is a member of the Commission, Iranian women are prohibited from attending by their government, or if they do attend are retaliated against once they get back to Iran.  On February  29 a group of NGOs (non governmental organizations) including Amnesty International  held a workshop in New York City in support of and in solidarity with the Iranian women and to discuss how to deal with the problem.
