          Change for Equality: April 29, 2009: Maryam Malek, a
          member of the Campaign who was arrested on April 25,
          2009 was released from Evin Prison on Wednesday
          April 29, after 5 days in detention. On April 28,
          members of the Mothers Committee submitted a letter
          to the Judiciary protesting the recent pressures on
          campaign and demanding that the bail order of 20
          million Tomans (roughly $20,000) issued in the case of
          Mar-yam Malek, demanding that the bail be reduced to a
          third party guarantee. The day before her release,
          Maryam was transferred to section 209 of Evin prison,
          where she was interrogated once again. Mar-yam was
          arrested on Saturday 25 April, following summons to
          report to the Revolutionary Courts for interrogation.
          She was initially transferred to Vozara detention center
          and later to Evin prison. She has been charged with
          “actions against national security” through the
          spreading of propaganda against the state and
          membership in the One Million Signatures Campaign.

          t ue case, by citing articles 499 and 500 ot t he Penal
          Code, charged Maryam with the spreading of
          “Propaganda Against the State” and a new charge of
          “membership in the One Million Signatures Campaign.”
          Mar-yam has denied the charges against her. A bail
          order in the amount of 20 Million Tomans was issued in
          this case. Maryam has explained to court officials that
          neither she nor her family has the ability to post this
          amount of bail. As a result, she was arrested and
          transferred to Evin Prison. Judge Heydari Fard has
          announced that the case is in the investigative stages
          and that interrogations of Mar-yam are ongoing.
          Maryam Malek is a 26 year old college student and a
          memberof the One Million Signature Campaign. She
          has written extensively about the difficulties women
          face in family court due to discriminatory laws. From a
          religious family herself, she has fought hard to obtain
          her rights as well. Her involvement in the Campaign
          stems from her personal experiences of being denied
          equal opportunities. This is the first time that a
          member of the Campaign has been officially charged
          with being involved in the Campaign. The charge infers
          that the Campaign is an illegal organization. Like
          Mar-yam, all members of the Campaign deny that their
          activities are illegal and strongly contend that they are
          acting within the law and their basic rights as citizens
          to have their voices and objections heard by other
          citizens and their representatives in Parliament.
          Read some of Mar-yam's reports from the Family Courts
          and Campaign meetings, as well as an account of her
          experience in collecting signatures in support of the
          Campaign's petition, which demands changes to laws
          that discriminate against women.
