Twenty-four- year-old Yasaman Aryani is serving a lengthy prison sentence for campaigning against forced veiling. Her punishment is part of a wider crackdown in Iran on women who have stood up against discriminatory and degrading forced veiling laws.
Please everyone watch and share the videos she posted on social media before being imprisoned in order to raise awareness of the brutal violation of women’s rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

#YasamanAryani was taken to solitary confinement in an Islamic Revolutionary Guards cell. She has already received a16 year prison sentence. This is cruel torture.
Revolutionary Guards claim they protect Iran but they are only good at torturing innocent people.#WhiteWednesdays pic.twitter.com/HzDBJlzZYR
