Vahid Asghari


Vahid Asghari is a women's human rights defender who has provided free online support and domains for human rights defenders and organisations in Iran.


Hope for political reform in Iran surfaced when President Hassan Rouhani assumed office in 2013 and dozens of opposition political figures and human rights defenders were released. However, violations of the rights to freedom of expression, association, peaceful assembly and movement of HRDs continue to be prevalent.
