Nasrin has done what other lawyers would never dare. She’s represented several women who were arrested after protesting the forced hijab law in Iran, journalists, high-profile rights activists, and even juveniles facing the death penalty.

Now her body will be whipped for it. And she’ll be silenced for decades to come, just for standing up for what she believes in. 

It’s not just Iran. In Saudi Arabia, Loujain al-Hathloul, another brave women’s rights activist, is in jail and has faced torture just for wanting to drive! But both Iran and Saudi rely on their relationships with the richest countries on Earth — which is why pressure from G7 nations is so key to ending this crackdown.

If we can build enough pressure, we can get the G7 to call for Nasrin’s release when they meet, and push them to commit to raising this in every meeting they have with countries that are cracking down on women. This could be an end to impunity for women’s rights abusers — so let’s make it happen! Add your name and share this widely!

Iran could easily get away with this horrific sentencing of Nasrin. But this is what our community was built for! We helped save Sakineh Ashtiani 6 years ago when Iran was gearing up to stone her to death for adultery. We can do it again. And this time not just help save Nasrin but set precedent for stronger respect for human rights around the world for years to come.

With hope and determination,

Rewan, Bert, Mélanie, Ricken, Muriel, Rosa, and the entire Avaaz team
