Shahla Entesari is facing imprisonment for her part in organizing a demonstration in June 2006 calling for an end to legal discrimination against women in Iran. She was also among 33 women arrested on 4 March 2007: most of the women were arrested while protesting at the trial of Shahla Entesari and four other women. This case sheet calls for the overturning of her conviction and dropping of all charges against her and for a review of the discriminatory legislation.
