NCRI WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

Works extensively with Iranian women outside the country and maintains a permanent contact with women inside Iran. The Women’s Committee is actively involved with many women's rights organizations and NGO's and the Iranian diaspora. The committee is a major source of much of the information received from inside Iran with regards to women. Attending UN Human Rights Commission meetings and other international or regional conferences on women’s issues, and engaging in a relentless battle against the Iranian regime's misogyny are part of the activities of members and associates of the committee.

According to the National Council of Resistance of Iran, two women were executed in Iran today at the infamous Qerchak Prison in Varamin. Executions in Iran appear to be on the upswing with 63 other people having been executed in recent days.

Demonstrations in the city of Mahabad took place in response to the death of a young girl, named Farinaz Khosravani, who killed herself to escape the rape attempt by an agent of the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry.

European foreign ministers on Monday added nine officials of the Iranian regime who were said to be "responsible for serious human rights violations" to the list of those subject to a travel ban and an asset freeze. A noble act on its own merit but a much bigger question lingers. What step, if any, by the west could spark the 'Iranian Spring'?
