WFPG Stands with the Women of Iran

The Women’s Foreign Policy Group stands firmly in solidarity with Iranian women fighting for freedom and equality. We are shocked by the tragic death of Mahsa Amini and moved by the bravery of the protesters who endanger their own lives to fight for human rights in Iran. The Mahsa Amini protests are a series of ongoing protests that started on September 16, 2022, sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, a young woman who died while in police custody for breaking the country's dress code.

The WFPG considers it of the utmost importance for people across the world to help protect and support Iranian women and their rights in any way they can. Learn how you can support Iranian women.
