They have been convicted of charges stemming from a video taken on International Women's Day that was widely shared on social media in March showing them without headscarves..
Monireh Arabshahi, Yasamin Aryani, and Mojgan Keshavarz, three women who have been held in Iranian custody since April of this year for "disrespecting compulsory hijab," have been sentenced by the Iranian Revolutionary Court to prison terms of at least 16 years each for disobeying the country's Islamic dress code.
The women were each given five years on charges of "assembly and collusion to act against national security," one year for circulating "propaganda against the regime" and ten years for "encouraging and preparing the grounds for corruption and prostitution." In addition, Keshavarz received another seven-and-a-half years for "insulting the sanctities" - a total of 55 years and six months.
The women were delivered the verdicts in the absence of their legal counsel, according to the Iran Human Rights Monitor; legal counsel was also denied during certain stages of the indictment process, interrogations and even during the trial itself.
when Judge Mohammad Moqisseh initially presented the charges, he "abusively" stated to the women, "I will make you all suffer. Qarchak, the prison where they are currently being held, is known to be one of the country's more menacing prisons due to "inhumane medical and psychological conditions." The facility which was once used as a chicken farm is now considered to be one of the largest and most dangerous prisons for women in Iran by many human rights organizations.
Just last week, 70 female cyclists were arrested in Tehran for violating the rules of "chastity and hijab."

Probably wearing open-toed shoes to boot.
“compulsory hijab” coming soon to a university or college near you.
Where’s the “Squad” when women are REALLY being oppressed?!
I thank God every DAY that I was born a girl/woman in America.
But I’m sure our American FemiNazis and the Code Pink chicks will be on this in 3...2...1...
What a pestilence Islam is in this world.
GMTA. Seconds apart!
Anderer lander anderer zeiten.
The ‘squad’ doesn’t care about women any more than the Liberal Democrats care about Black people in the US.
Muzzies “create” crimes.
Hillary should be thankful she has the freedom to wear her horrible pantsuits and shoes that nuns would refuse to wear.
We could have said she violated good taste and caused general nausea.
Like I've always said....Islam is NOT a religion...it's a political system.....based on total submission.
Isnt diversity and inclusiveness wonderful?
You wouldn’t want to hear what happened to the women who competed in the wet burka contest.
Week in jail and a week of having compulsory lectures for eight hours a day by Ihlan Omar on the purity of the Muslim woman. Most cracked under the strain and begged for hard labor instead.
Let that sink in when you consider making a big deal about a US Women's team's international success. Even in countries like Brazil, not many women are interested.
Let’s go you Squad Bints!!!
May somehow God (the real one, whom Christians know) sweep Iran and commute the entire sentence upon Iran itself. These gals were already in prison; Iran only made it formal.
That is not a camel. That is a human being.
It’s a Death Cult. I’ll never understand it, myself. :(
