Sentenced to jail for promoting feminism

Eight political and civil rights activists have been imprisoned in Iran for reading and spreading feministic literature in a weekly reading book club, organized by a book store. Their attorneys were limited to defend them through three written sentences, and were not allowed to speak on their behalf. The book store has been sealed and the workers of the bookstore lost their livelihood. The prison sentences range from 29 days to four years.
