Speak up for Human Rights.

June 27, 2018

Join the twitterstorm for the Iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh who has been imprisoned.

For years she has been advocating for human rights activists and women’s rights in Iran. Ms Sotoudeh came to prominence representing defendants sentenced to die for crimes committed when they were children, opposition politicians, and the Nobel Prize winning-Iranian dissident Shirin Ebadi. Shirin was the godmother of the IAWM - International Association of Women's Museums - network. inVISIBLEwomen is a member of the IAWM.

She recently represented Vida Mohaved, a 31-year-old mother of one who was arrested in Tehran as she stood on top of a telecoms box hoisting a white hijab on a stick in protest at Iran’s compulsory veiling laws. Ms Mohaved’s protest helped inspire dozens of other women and some men to mount similar protests.
