On October 8, Iranian regime’s media published the newest speech of the Supreme leader Khamenei, in which expressed his anger and frustration at what he called the regime’s “misogynist slander”.
Khamenei said: “The enemy’s misogynist slander against the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic is a slander that they have repeated since the beginning of the revolution… this slander has always existed.”
This red hot statement by the Supreme leader sheds light on the fact that the brilliant struggles of Iranian women during all these years is so distinct that neither him nor other Iranian officials can hide.
In another part of his speech, Khamenei admitted in reverse language: “The issue of women is one of the most important issues in the world. In the case of the woman, we are not in a position of defense… We have no problem with this, but in the face of the enemy’s lineup, we must make a statement, we must show the truth.”
Expressions such as, “in the case of the woman, we are not in a position of defense” and “we have no problem in this matter” does not even convince Khamenei’s audience. Ironically, the reactionary cleric was forced to do such a “defense” precisely because his forces, either inside the country against the waves of anger and hatred of the general public, or his appointees in international scenes are afraid and defenseless wherever the issue of women and women’s oppression in Iran are raised. Therefore, the verbal advice of the helpless Supreme Leader, for his crushed troops, “We must declare our presence in front of the enemy’s line-up”, does not solve any of their problems.
The truth is that, beyond the description of Khomeini’s thought and practices, “misogyny” is a prominent feature of the “Velayat al-Faqih” (Supereme leader’s fundamentalist system). It is actually one of the foundations of mullahs’ rule and the dynamism of the forces protecting the regime. Without it, the medieval regime of the mullahs loses one of the main elements in its ideology, and collapses.
Misogyny is one of the main pillars of the of “Velayat al-Faqih” dictatorship. Thus every Iranian, man and woman, to the extent that he/she is truly anti-dictatorship and is libertarian, is equally in favor of equality between men and women. In the forefront of uprisings against the tyrannical regime, Iranian protesters, women and girls in particular, have proven their competency in the ranks of organized resistance. This has aroused the admiration of all those who believe in the ideal of equality all over the world.
On the other hand, when “misogyny” is an essential part of fundamentalist ideology of Iran’s rulers, then the resistance organized against it needs to believe, by all means, in the ideal of women’s liberation and equality. With this necessity the Mojahedin of Iran have stood up to the face of Khomeini and Khamenei‘s medieval regime for over four decades. Women have now reached the ranks of leadership inside Mojahedin organization.
27 years ago, Maryam Rajavi said, in response to the misogynist ruling mullahs, “You have done your utmost to humiliate, suppress, torture and slaughter Iranian women, but rest assured that you would receive the blow from the very force you discounted, the very force whom your reactionary mindset cannot allow you to take into consideration.
Rest assured that these knowledgeable and free women will dismantle your oppression everywhere.” “Women the voice of the oppressed” – London, July 1, 2015
