is a project of The Alliance for Rights of All Minorities (ARAM) in Iran. ARAM’s mission is to promote equal rights for women, LGBT groups and minorities through public advocacy and awareness strategies that advance human rights and address Iran’s discriminatory laws.

What We Do

  • Monitor and report the trends of femicide as reported by Iranian news and grassroots activists
  • Honor the memory of women who have been murdered in Iran
  • Raise awareness about this most lethal form of violence against women

Get Involved

  • Follow: sign up here to be on our email list. We also encourage you to follow us on social media at TWITTER/FACEBOOK
  • Report: You can provide a confidential report of a femicide to us here. Please provide as much detail as you can, such as date, location, names of involved parties and most importantly, a way for us to honor the memory of the victim.
  • Share the stories: If a story has inspired you, please share it with others. We believe in the power of the collective and as with more awareness, we can hope for more tolerance and respect for lives of women and girls.
  • Donate: StopFemicideIran is a volunteer-run initiative, supported by dedicated people who believe in the right of women to live safe and free lives. You are welcome to support our work by making a donation here. All our proceeds will go toward the cost of maintaining this page and elevating the facts about femicide in Iran. At the present time, StopFemicideIran is NOT a 501-C3 organization and we will not be able to provide you with a tax-deductible receipt.

How to be an ally

  • Acknowledge that the lives of people in other countries and regions are as valuable as any other.
  • Recognize that there’s no cultural justification for human rights violations. Practices such as femicide, child marriage, FGM, and compulsory hijab are inhumane practices and deteriorate the social fabric.
  • Educate yourself about the plight of women around the world by including alternative news media that covers human rights news.
  • Refrain from engaging in sexist jokes, stereotypes and insults. Such behaviors perpetuate the social systems that disadvantage women and girls.
  • Take advantage of your “freedom privilege,” the privilege of living in a democracy that, despite its imperfections, grants you freedom of expression and civic participation. Since so many people living in repressive regimes are deprived of these opportunities, use your freedom to be their voice.
  • Speak truth to power! Feel empowered by the value of human rights advocacy and serve as an ambassador for persecuted people by educating and engaging influencers in diverse fields.
  • Refrain from politicizing matters related to human rights and human dignity as partisan politics. Human rights and rights of women are core values that transcend political games and partisan rivalries.
  • Amplify the voices of women around the world by seeking and developing networks that empower them.  
  • Use social media and your personal platform for learning about and advocating for women. Follow @StopFemicideIran on Twitter and Facebook
  • Take action! Even the smallest acts of advocacy and solidarity can make a difference.
