    Unfortunately not much can be done by the US or international organizations. I'm not sure that the Nobel Prize helps them personally or Iran though it makes us feel better.

    It may even hurt recipients, of which there have been 2 now, with the most recent in prison, and suffering from government retaliation for the reward. I hope world recognition gives them some solace after being separated from families and being retaliation targets (financially, professionally, physically) along with their family members.

    "The Islamic Republic government rules a country where two of its women, both defenders of human rights, have now won the Nobel Peace Prize. Before Narges Mohammadi, who is now incarcerated in Tehran’s Evin Prison, Shirin Ebadi, a lawyer and children rights activist, received this prize in 2003. Since then, the Islamic Republic has done everything it could to take revenge against her."

    "At the time, it was assumed that the Nobel Peace Prize would provide some degree of protection for this world-renowned lawyer who had been repeatedly harassed for accepting to represent plaintiffs in cases such as the Chain Murders of dissidents and the 1999 attack on a university dormitory in Tehran. But the Islamic Republic was determined to take revenge against her."

    "Immediately after receiving the Nobel prize, the authorities increased their pressure on Shirin Ebadi, but this harassment reached new heights after the disputed 2009 presidential election."

    "Ebadi’s refusal to heed this warning resulted in pressures on her husband Javad Tavassolian."

    "Three days after the arrest of Ebadi’s husband, he was sentenced to death by stoning on the charge of “adultery.” Then Tavassolian’s handler, a man by the name of Mahmoudi, told him that the only way to escape execution was to read a text in front of a camera that portrayed Ebadi as a foreign agent and her Nobel prize as a tool for bringing down the Islamic Republic."

    "Tavassolian, who became a broken-down man after his arrest, interrogations, trial and imprisonment, accepted the ultimatum, and an appeals court replaced the death sentence with a fine of 100,000 tomans."

    "The forced confessions of Javad Tavassolian was finally aired on state-run TV on June 11, 2010, the day before the first anniversary of the disputed 2009 presidential election. In the “interview,” he accused his wife of "carrying out orders from abroad" and of having played a role in organizing the post-election demonstrations. Repeating what the interrogators had told him to say, he even accused his wife of not respecting “human rights” at home during their long marriage: “In our home, she did not even respect the human rights of four people. Once she broke my glasses and at another time she tore my shirt. She attacked and beat me.”

    "The program ended with Tavassolian announcing that he wanted to separate from Ebadi unless she returned to Iran and expressed remorse for her actions. The couple had married in 1975 but agreed to a divorce to save Tavassolian."

    "In December 2009, Dr. Nooshin Ebadi, Shirin Ebadi’s sister, was kept in custody for 17 days during which she was pressured to sever her relations with the activist; otherwise, she was told she would be dismissed from her university job."

    "The government confiscated and sold two properties belonging to Ebadi after the Ministry of Science announced that the Nobel Peace Prize is not a scientific prize. And, even though she was no longer living in Iran, she was banned from leaving the country if she returned because she had refused to pay her taxes. The government also confiscated her Nobel Peace Prize and other awards she had received from her bank box."

    "Now, after 20 years, another Iranian woman and human rights activist, Narges Mohammadi, won the same prize and the reactions of the Islamic Republic’s officials to this event are similar to those following Ebadi’s awarding."

    "the Islamic Republic is going to treat Mohammadi the same way it treated Ebadi, with a notable difference: Mohammadi is already their captive in Evin Prison."

    Witnesses have testified they saw a chador-clad female hijab enforcer push Armita and she was conscious before she fell. CCTV footage has not been publicly released but it has been reported that 100 secs are missing. The false claim that she fainted from low blood sugar was a statement made by the parents under duress, and possibly her mother was arrested though the government denied this claim, The Ministry of Education has threatened her teachers over social media activity. Few independent newspapers still operate.

    "A witness claimed that soon after Armita entered the carriage a female hijab enforcer started arguing with her because she wasn’t wearing a headscarf. “The chador-clad woman screamed at her asking her why was she not covered,” the witness told the Guardian. “Armita then told her ‘Do I ask you to remove your headscarf? Why are you asking me to wear one?’ Their argument then turned violent. The hijab enforcer started physically attacking Armita and … violently pushed her....Another witness said Armita was still conscious when she fell on the ground. Witnesses claimed they spotted the same hijab enforcer waiting behind the ambulance that took Armita"

    "State news has not carried any footage from inside the train itself and offered no explanation on why it hadn’t been released. Most train cars on the Tehran metro have multiple CCTV cameras, which are viewable by security personnel. Opposition figures say the clock on the footage shows at least 100 seconds is missing."

    "Iran’s few remaining independent newspapers, under ever heavier censorship, have not reported extensively on what happened, but Etemaad, a reformist paper, challenged the government to explain why reporters were being prevented from carrying out their constitutional duty to seek the truth."

    "A trade union for teachers said in a statement on Wednesday that the ministry of education’s security director had visited Armita’s school and threatened her teachers. “He emphasised that sharing any news or photos of Armita Geravand on social media by her teachers would result in heavy fines and the immediate termination of their contracts,” the union said."

    Just more atrocities against women by the Iranian government.

    We must continue speaking out and calling for human rights protections in Iran.

     

    Meanwhile, Narges Mohammadi, a jailed Iranian female journalist, has won the Nobel Peace Prize!

    I'm sure the Iranian government doesn't care, but the world is watching.
