In an unprecedented conference in Paris, women who had gathered from several continents called for support for women who have risen in the Arab world to struggle against tyranny and fundamentalism and also for women of Iranian Resistance in camps Ashraf and Liberty in Iraq who are facing serious threats. This conference was convened at a time that the second group of 400 Ashraf residents has moved to Camp Liberty in Iraq.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance and the keynote speaker to the conference, while praising the heroic uprising of Syrian people, said: Women, men and children in Syria have been fighting with tooth and nail against the alliance of evil and darkness.

The axis of this sinister union is the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, which is terrified of expanding revolutions, especially by the people of Syria who are fighting to gain their freedom. This is so because the fall of Assad would shatter the mullahs' regional alliance. It would also disrupt the balance of power within the Iranian regime to Khamenei's detriment.

This conference convened at the initiative of the International Federation of Women Against Fundamentalism and for Equality (WAFE) and with support from dozens of associations and organizations defending women's rights around the world. Dozens of political personalities and defenders of women's rights, including Bariza Khiari, vice-President of French Senate; Rita Süssmuth, former President of German Bundestag; Tasha de Vasconcelos, humanitarian Ambassador for European Union; Linda Chavez, former White House Director for Public Liaison; Ingrid Betancourt, former Colombian presidential candidate; Anne-Marie Lizin, former President of Belgian Senate; and lawmakers from various countries, including Nariman al-Roussan (Jordan), Elisabetta Zamparutti (Italy), Martine Pinville (France), Baroness Ilora Finlay (Britain), Els Demol (Belgium), Dr. Najat Bubakr, member of Parliament, (Palestine); Naima Rabbaa, Member of Parliament (Moracco); Amal Basha (Yemen, Nobel Prize Candidate); Edit Bauer, member of European Parliament; Sarah Chandler, Head of Human Rights Committee of the Law Society in England and Wales; Anissa Boumedienne, Islam expert and former Algerian First Lady during Presidency of Houari Boumedienne; Anne Ferreira, Vice President of the Regional Council of Pecardy, (France); Ruth Wedgewood, jurist from U.S.; Aude de Thuin, Founder and President of Women's Forum for the Economy and Society in France; Cynthia Fleury, French modern philosopher; Raymonde Folco, former member of Canadian parliament; Sara Phillips, woman activist from U.S., were speakers to this conference.
