Actress Angelina Jolie Stands By Women and Men ‘Defending Basic Rights and Freedoms’ in Iran


American actress, Angelina Jolie has shown support for Iranian women and men defending basic rights and freedoms.

The 48-year-old actress and humanitarian took to Instagram to call attention to the situation in Iran following the death last September of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while in the custody of the country’s morality police.

Jolie shared an image of a woman wearing clear glasses with tears running down her eyes in the colors of the Iranian flag along with the words, ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’.

‘Respect and solidarity to Iranian women and men for their courage in defending basic rights and freedoms, and thinking of those imprisoned or facing prosecution – as in other situations where freedom of expression is restricted or denied – including #ElahehMohammadi #NiloofarHamedi #NargesMohammadi #ToomajSalwhi,’ Jolie wrote in the caption for her roughly 14.5 million followers.

Jolie in her hashtags referenced Elaheh Mohammadi, 36, who was imprisoned in September 2022 for reporting on Amini’s funeral. Hamedi, 30, also was imprisoned for reporting on Amini’s hospitalization and death.

Narges Mohammadi, 51, is an Iranian human rights activist who is serving a 10-year prison sentence for ‘spreading anti-state propaganda’ and has remained vocal despite her imprisonment.

Salehi, 32, an Iranian hip-hop artist was sentenced to six years in prison for participating in the 2022 Iran protests following Amini’s death.
