It seems like a bad joke: Just in time for Iran to take place in the UN kvinnoråd judge the country, without trial, lawyer and women's rights activist Nasrin Sotoudeh to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes.
Her crime? She has represented women who do not want to wear a veil, defended them. Or, as it is called in diktaturspråk: She has disseminated anti-state information, insulting the supreme leader and indulged in espionage.
What has a such country in the united nations kvinnoråd to do? Nothing at all, is the answer.
that mean that it is good to let the scrubby regimes take part in the important work of human rights. It puts pressure on them.
But very little to suggest that the tyrants will be milder to the mind, only that they be decorated and placed in the finrummet. Rather, it offers them a mandate.
for example, has not got the country to stop shaming the women's human rights. There is still a gender apartheid. Women are under male guardianship, and may not do anything without their head allowed it: study, work, travel, marry, receive health care or even move freely. There is even a government app, Absher, which is that men should be able to control them and constantly know exactly where they are.
Women got in last year, although the right to drive a car, but the grace should not give much for when they who had fought for this at the same time, imprisoned or disappeared. The regime did not want to deny them any victory, and also sent a signal to those who were inspired to fight for more rights: do not even Try.
Iran should know that no one accepts the brutality of the country's women.
only become increasingly vidrigare against the iranian women who go without a veil lately. It is incumbent, therefore, on the free world that clearly show that it will not tolerate this.
It was said that including the swedes were right who wore a headscarf during a governmental in Iran this year, and so I thought also. Then. But now I have changed my mind.
enough to take the customs where you will, but in a country where the practice is oppression and should not abide. To refuse the veil are illegal – and that is exactly why you should do it. Incidentally, it is also illegal for women in Iran to travel without a male guardian and to stay alone in the hotel, and Swedish ministers violate these laws without judicial sanctions. So why should they respect the right, the decree on the veil?
no one accepts the brutality of the country's women. That it is utterly reprehensible, and that the world will never play with and pretend otherwise, for the good the tuning's sake. This is the least we can do for the iranian women.
