Two Iranian women’s rights activists who were being held in a Tehran jail have been released on bail, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported on January 4, citing Radio Farda.

Jelveh Javaheri and Mariam Hosseinkhah were arrested in connection with their involvement in a campaign to gather one million signatures in an effort to change discriminatory laws in Iran.
