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.

Human Rights activist, Narges Mohmmadi’s health has severely deteriorated since prison authorities have refused to provide her with the necessary medication.  

Currently Narges Mohammadi is suffering from increased heart rate and elevated blood pressure.  

In a note sent from prison, Narges wrote, “I have gone to the clinic 6 times to get my medicine. Despite promises by various officials, they are not giving me all of my medicine. I wrote a letter to the public prosecutor. Judiciary official Nasiri-poor threatened me and said, ‘they are making a lot of noise about you and the judge will issue a severe ruling against you’.”
