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.

The Iranian regime's Supreme Court ruled on February 3, 2017, that a woman must be blinded in one eye.

The sentence was issued in retribution for an acid attack that blinded her victim in one eye.

The unidentified woman was found guilty of splashing acid two years ago in the face of another woman identified as Sima, in Dehdasht, capital of the western Iranian province of Kohgiluyeh.

Head of the Kohgiluyeh's Justice Department, Majid Karami, announced that the woman had been sentenced to blindness in one eye, payment of blood money (compensation), and seven years imprisonment by the Supreme Court. (The state-run Tasnim news agency – February 3, 2017)
