Women in Iran face widespread discrimination under the law. They do not have equal rights with men in marriage, divorce, child custody and inheritance, for example. Iranian women’s rights defenders have courageously launched a campaign demanding an end to legal discrimination against women. Amnesty International is publishing this report in solidarity with the efforts of these women to achieve equality before the law and to highlight the repression that they are facing for their peaceful activities.
