Targeting of Iranian Feminists Continues

33 more Iranian women activists were arrested yesterday during a peaceful protest in Tehran. The women are members of the Mourning Mothers, which was formed after the death of Neda Agha-Soltan last summer. The women are mothers of anti-government protesters who have been killed, detained, or missing.

Last month, Ministry of Intelligence agents arrested Dr. Noushi Ebadi, sister of Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi, Mansoureh Shojaee, a founder of the One Million Signatures campaign for Women's Equality in Iran and journalist Morteza Kazemian.
