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.

Ms. Hajar Rostami commemorated her daughter on June 19, 2016, at her tomb while accompanied by a number of other bereaved mothers and relatives of those slain in the 2009 uprising.

Neda Agha Soltan was one of the thousands who were killed during the 2009 uprising. She was shot dead in Tehran’s Amir Abad district on June 20, 2009. A short film taken by a mobile phone and posted on the internet which showed her last moments, dying with her eyes open shocked the world and opened their eyes to the Iranian people's deep-rooted opposition to the ruling regime. Thus Neda became the symbol of the 2009 uprising.
