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.

British-Iranian citizen, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested by the Revolutionary Guards while leaving Iran. Since her arrest a month ago, she has been kept in solitary confinement in Kerman.

She had travelled to Iran along with her 22-month-old daughter whose only British passport was taken at the airport and she would not be allowed to leave Iran.

Mrs. Zaghari has been deprived of legal representation since her arrest on April 3.  She was also deprived of calling her husband outside Iran and even visiting her infant daughter.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 37, was cooperating with the Reuters while her main occupation was with charity foundations.

During a call with her family inside Iran, Mrs. Zaghari said she was forced to sign some papers while under interrogation about security matters.

According to the Iranian law, when an Iranian woman marries a foreign man, she would not be able to register her child as an Iranian citizen.
