Women's Forum Against Fundamentalism in Iran is a US based non-profit
organization based in Boston, Massachusetts.
We are a
group of individuals concerned with the growing threat of
fundamentalism worldwide, particularly in Iran. We submit to the
definition of fundamentalism explained in the comparative study of
religions, as embodiment of anti-modernist movements and backwardness
in its host cultures.
Our primary area of focus is the Islamic
Fundamentalism in Iran that was established as a form of government in
1979. Having been suppressed or victimized by the abuse and misuse of
religious authorities in Iran, many of us have been active over the past
two decades in the areas of human rights, democracy and freedom for
the Iranian people, women in particular.
We believe the full participation of women in
all levels of decision making will lead to desired social, political
and economic equality. We
reject all forms of fundamentalism and believe in religious pluralism
and secularism. We believe in women's struggle in Iran and support
their desire to establish a secular and democratic government.
