"It is a targeted practice. The interrogators are given special training to systematically break the morale of jailed women," stated Iranian rights advocate Narges Mohammadi. She was recounting details of how dissident women are subject to various forms of mistreatment during interrogation by Iran's Intelligence Ministry and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Addressing a meeting on the social media platform Clubhouse, Mohammadi reported physical mistreatment at the hands of male interrogators and guards. She noted that such practices are not limited to secular women and said religious prisoners are not spared.
