Posted on

The NCRI with Maryam Rajavi as our President Elect has been fighting for women’s rights for Iranian women for many years. The rights for women are stated in the 10 point plan for women’s rights.

It is well known that the rights of women are non-existing in the mullahs regime, Maryam Rajavi is the determent to change this as soon as the mullahs are removed from power.

 

In tomorrow’s Iran, women will have the same rights under the law as the men, they will also enjoy the same rights to any education they desire. And most important to women will be, that she can choose what clothes to wear, or if she wants to wear a hijab or not. The most important issue for Mrs. Rajavi is that women will be equal to men on all subjects, a woman can become a politician if she wants to, in fact, Mrs. Rajavi wants a law that states that 50 % of the government must be women, The leadership of the NCRI shows that under the leadership of women there can be changes that are beneficiary for the whole society. Mrs. Rajavi also states that women shall also receive equal pay as men for equal work. Women must enjoy the same social benefits as men.

A woman must have the right to daycare for her children if she is working and she will have a right to maternity leave during pregnancy and after delivery. Mrs. Rajavi is also clear on the subject of marriage, no woman shall be forced to marry without her consent, she will be free to choose her own spouse. She will also have the right to divorce her spouse if she wishes. But one of the most important rights that Mrs. Rajavi has stated is the abolition of child marriage, no child under age can be forced into marriage. Every day at least 2000 women are arrested because of violation of dress code this is is a major violation of women’s rights and will be abolished in the future Iran.

The Sharia law will be repealed under the rule of Mrs. Rajavi, she states that the new law in Iran will be based on Human rights and democracy. She is also firm in her statement to abolish death penalties such as stoning and hanging.  She is clear in her view that these are medieval punishments and have no place in a free and democratic Iran. Any violence against women such as domestic violence, rape or coercion will be considered a crime.

The ones that will change Iran is the women, and the mullahs know this, that is why they have put so many restrictions on women but it will fail. Iran will rise again with Maryam Rajavi at the helm and women will no longer be second class citizens but equal to men under the law. Iranian resistance remains committed to struggle to free Iran for women.
