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.

Kurdish political prisoner Hajar Peari was transferred to Tabriz Prison on December 23, 2016, after 9 years of imprisonment in exile in Kerman Prison. Ms. Peari strongly protested this transfer.

Hajar Peari, 33, was arrested in April 2007. She spent seven months in the detention centers of the intelligence departments of Naghadeh and Orumieh, under interrogation and pressure.

In October 2007, she was sentenced to 17 years of imprisonment on the charge of membership in an opposition Kurdish party.

Presently, Ms. Peari is in dire physical condition and suffers from acute pain and infection in the chest.
