According to news recieved from Student Council of Defense of Human Rights in Kurdistan Ms. Hanna Abdi, a womens rights activist who had been imprisoned for the past 1.5 years was released from prison on February 26th 2009. I am extremely overjoyed by this news, and send my good wishes to Ms. Abdi and her family.

At the same time we must remember that there are still many other women's rights activists such as Ms. Ronak Safazadeh and Ms. Zeynab Bayezidi who are still in prison, and there are womens' rights activists such as much Zeynab Jalail who faces the death sentence.

In hopes of a day when all political prisoners are free...
