Maryam Shariatmadari was one of the Girls of Revolution Street.
Girls of Revolution Street / Enghelab Street (Persian: دختران خیابان انقلاب) is a series of protests against the compulsory Hijab in Iran. The protests were inspired by Vida Movahed (Persian: ویدا موحد), an Iranian woman known as the Girl of Revolution Street (Persian: دختر خیابان انقلاب), who stood on an utility box on Enghelab Street (Revolution Street) in Tehran on 27 December 2017, tied her Hijab, a white headscarf, to a stick, and waved it to the crowd as a flag.
Maryam Shariatmadari (Persian مریم شریعتمداری) one of the Girls of Revolution Street injured during compulsory hijab protest was denied post-surgery care by prison officials. Her mother had to disobey the hijab law to get arrested and be jailed so that she could care for her injured daughter in prison. www.IranHumanRights.Org
Nasrin Sotoudeh (Persian نسرین ستوده) www.NasrinSotoudeh.com, the Iranian Human-Rights lawyer defending Iranian girls peacefully protesting Iran's compulsory hijab law, was thrown in the notorious Evin prison; so were the Girls of The Revolution Street; so was the lawyer of their lawyer!

38 years in prison & 148 lashes
The Islamic regime has just imposed a very heavy sentence on Nasrin Sotoudeh, prominent Iranian Human-Rights & Women's-Rights lawyer, the harshest sentence Amnesty International has documented against a Human-Rights defender in Iran in recent years, suggesting that the authorities - emboldened by pervasive impunity for human rights violations - are stepping up their repression. - Amnesty International
First sentence: 5 years in prison
Second sentence: 33 years in prison & 148 lashes
Total: 38 years in prison & 148 lashes
Being denied a lawyer of her choice, neither Nasrin nor her lawyer were present in court to defend her for this sentencing, she was tried in absentia, and this sentence was delived to Nasrin in her prison cell. - Reza Khandan, Facebook
"Nasrin Sotoudeh has dedicated her life to defending women's rights and speaking out against the death penalty - it is utterly outrageous that Iran's authorities are punishing her for her human rights work" - Amnesty International
