Report: The women’s ward in Evin Prison is atrocious

“Political prisoners held in the Women’s Ward at Iran’s Evin Prison are routinely denied medical care and hospitalization, face severely restricted or denied visitation rights even with their young children, are deprived of regular telephone contact with their families, and are not provided adequate nutrition”. And it’s not as if the women there are hardened criminals: most are in jail because of their religion, their activism or their criticism of the regime.
