Some 200 people gathered Sunday outside the Iranian Embassy in Belgrade to show support for Iranian women exposed to repression by the Iranian authorities.

Some women had the colors of the Iranian flag painted on their faces, while others carried signs reading: Woman, life, freedom.

The rally was also attended by the activists of the Female Solidarity feminist movement and representatives of the opposition Democratic Party and Party of Freedom and Justice.

An Iranian woman who attended said she was happy that a large number of people came and that Iranian women received great support.

“This means a lot to me, it really does. You don’t know what kind of courage it took to come here. I came for all the women who are tortured and killed in Iran,” she said.

She added that violence is perpetrated against women in her country as well as that there has been no Internet in Iran for 16 days because of which she has no contact with her family.
