MEWSo, the Middle Eastern Women & Society organisation,
fighting for women's rights at home and abroad
Around the world women's rights are being attacked. What happens in the ancestral homelands of many British citizens often finds its way into the diaspora populations living here in Britain.
Cultural centres and education establishments in London, linked to despotic regimes such as the Islamic State of Iran, spread their doctrine to the young, naive and conservative and promote policies and values that subjugate women, rob us of our human rights, and would have us live as if back in the Middle Ages.
Their doctrines are so against the many freedoms, equal rights and humane values so hard fought for over many centuries, that your children, your family and your community may be at risk!
That is why we are protesting against the abuse of women and young girls in Iran; sending a message of hope to Iran's freedom protesters; and helping to prevent the same abuse of women and young girls taking place here in the UK.
See below what you can do to help. Thank you.
