<<'I felt solidarity': Afghan women monitor Iran protests, vow to continue fight for basic rights.
Since the Taliban takeover last year, Afghan women and girls have been demonstrating for their right to education and employment. So, when women in Iran began anti-regime protests after the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody, their Afghan sisters have been moni-toring the situation across the border, hoping for a spillover effect.
Raihana M* was in her living room in the Afghan capital, Kabul, when she first heard of protests erupting across the border in neighbouring Iran following the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini, who was arrested for allegedly breaching Iran's strict dress code. The Afghan social worker saw footage of the protests in Iran on Manoto TV, a London-based Persian language TV station, and said she felt an immediate, almost physical, rush of solidarity for her Iranian sisters.
<I was really shocked and sad. As an Afghan, as a woman, I felt solidarity because we are experiencing the same thing. Only it's worse for women in Afghanistan,> she explained in a phone interview from Kabul. That was in late September, not long after 22-year-old Amini was declared dead by the Iranian authorities. Raihana then took to social media, watching clips of protests across Iranian cities and towns. Other Afghan women living under the Taliban regime were also doing the same. Within days, a group of around 30 Afghan women gathered outside the Iranian embassy in Kabul chanting, <Zan, zendagi, azadi!> (Women, life, freedom), echoing the protest cry from Iran. They also held banners proclaiming, <From Kabul to Iran, say no to dictatorship!>. Taliban officials then moved in to break up the demonstration, firing into the air and threatening to hit the women with their rifle butts. Afghan women despite being under immense pressure and Deprived of their all human and basic rights themselves decided to protest In Solidarity and support of Women of Iran, in front of Iranian Embassy in Kabul.#Mahsa_Amini #OpIran

Lina Qasimi, an Afghan teenager who has been unable to go to school since the Taliban shut down secondary schools, has also been keenly following the protests in Iran. <I feel very close to this. It's really terrible. No one should be killed for just showing their hair. But in Afghanistan, it's not just hair, it's women. Just being a woman is a problem for the Taliban,> she said.
Afghan women are really alone
As protests spread across Iran, both Raihana and Qasimi were struck by the extraordinary scenes of Iranian men joining the women in their anti-regime demonstrations. <The difference is, in Iran, all the people are standing up. Iranian women and men are really protesting in unity,> noted Raihana. <In Afghanistan, it's not like that - people are so afraid. Afghan women are really alone.> That's true, says Tamim Asey, co-founder of the Kabul-based Institute for War and Peace Studies and a former Afghan deputy defence minister. <Iranian women have the support of men in considerable ways. Afghan women don't have that. Afghan men have suffered 40 years of war, so much violence, so much killing. The Taliban are also putting tremendous pressure on the men. If some women protest, they find their husbands, fathers, brothers and arrest them,> he explain-ed. Afghan women began protesting the week after the Taliban seized control of Kabul on August 15, 2021, despite the grave risk of confronting a movement of hardline Islamist male fighters. The crackdown has been brutal and extends to male relatives of 'troublesome' women, according to rights groups. In a report last week, the New York-based Human Rights Watch detailed the arrests of three women, who were arrested with their husbands and children, separated under detention and severely tortured. The detained women include Tamana Paryani, who filmed herself pleading for help as the Taliban broke into her house at night in January after she joined a women's protest demanding the right to education and work.>>

<<News Center - The number of femicide cases increases every day due to the patriarchal and misogynistic system of the Islamic Republic, which has been ruling the Iranian society for more than four decades. In October, many women were killed in the country by men. Although the number of women, who were killed in October, is now unknown, the number of women, who were killed by the security forces, is reported as at least nine. There are no accurate statistics of the number of women, who were driven into suicide or killed in Iran in October due to the Iranian regime's restrictions to internet access. NuJINHA Persian listed the number of the women, who were killed in October in Iran, by compiling news from local and national newspapers, news websites and news agencies. The number of women, who were killed in October, is probably higher than listed.
The list of women is as follows:
On September 23, Sarina Ismailzadeh was killed by the security forces in Karaj, but her death was reported by press outlets a few days after her death.
On September 23, Hadiyeh Naimani was killed by security forces in Hafez street of Iran's Nowshahr city.
On September 25, 20-year-old Hadith Najafi was killed by security forces during a protest in the city of Karaj.
At the beginning of October, Roshana Ahmadi was killed by the security forces during a protest in the city of Bukan.
On September 22, 18-year-old Mehsa Mogoi was killed by security forces in the city of Fuladshahr, Isfahan Province.
On October 9, Nadia Erfani was killed by security forces in the city of Karaj.
On October 9, a Baloch woman from a Dastjardi family, was shot to death in the city of Qaleh Ganj by one of the security officers after rejecting his marriage proposal.
On October 10, Elaha Saeedi was shot to death by Iranian security forces in the city Saqqez.
Note by Gino d'Artali: 3 other victims are named but were killed in an act of 'domestic violence'. My heart goes out to the all the families and others left behind.

<<Moroccan women launch initiative to be in solidarity with Iranian women.
Morocco- The protests that started in Iran and many countries following the killing of Jhina Mahsa Amini (22) by the Iranian regime, continue. While some women have taken to the streets by chanting the slogan, <Jin, Jiyan, Azadi (Women, Life, Freedom)>, some cut their hair to condemn the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini and protest the patriarchal mentality that keeps killing women all around the world. In order to show solidarity with Iranian women, Moroccan women have launched an initiative named, <Cut your hair for the rights of half of society.>
<We want to be in solidarity with Iranian women>
Moroccan politician Naima Farah is one of the members of the initia-tive. Stating that the initiative is a symbolic initiative, she said, <We have launched this initiative to be in solidarity with the Iranian women, who have been taking to the streets in order to protest the killing of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini by the Iranian so-cal-led morality police because her hair was visible. We call on women all around the world to be in solidarity with women in Iran. In Iran, women are subjected to all kinds of injustice practices. Iran is a country where women suffer from many rights violations. Our initiative is a response to the rights violation against women in Iran.>
<Women do not want an oppressive regime>
Pointing to the importance of the global feminist solidarity, Naima Farah said, <Women's solidarity has the power to change the system. The killing of Mahsa Amini was the last straw. It sparked an uprising all around the world. In many countries, people have protes-ted and condemned the Iranian regime. Most human rights and women's rights defenders have written articles and issued state-ments to show their solidarity with women in Iran. As it is known, the Iranian regime imposes hijab on women and women have been protesting the compulsory hijab rules for many years. They do not want an oppressive regime anymore. The international community must take action and severe measures.> Emphasizing that the oppression in Iran has united all women of the world, Naima Farah said, <The international community must take action and severe measures to end all rights violations against women. Sanctions must not include only economic sanctions. If their do not take severe measures, women will continue to be killed and subjected to discrimination. For this reason, severe measures are needed.> >>
