Getting arrested for protesting

During the protests, I was caught printing and distributing leaflets protesting Islamic dress and the repression of women, which was seen as being anti-Iranian and anti-Khomeini. I was beaten, taken to jail, and beaten some more. I endured this for two months before I was released. I had to sign a paper promising never to participate in anti-government protests again on the threat of death. When I was finally released, I was so frail and weak, I could hardly walk.

A few days later, I got word that another girl who was beaten had named me as one of the people who participated in a bombing. This was false. But I knew if I was arrested I'd be executed. So I had no choice but to flee.
