Iran: Women's rights defenders defy repression: Noushin Ahmadi Khorassani
Journalist Noushin Ahmadi Khorassani is facing imprisonment for her part in organizing a demonstration in June 2006 calling for an end to legal discrimination against women in Iran. During her trial, she was among 33 women arrested on 4 March 2007 and charged with colluding with the intent to harm national security. This case sheet calls for the overturning of her conviction and dropping of all charges against her; for an end to her harassment by the authorities; and for a review of the discriminatory legislation.
