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.

Monday, February 13, 2017, marked the anniversary of Sane'e Jaleh, a Tehran University student of art who got killed by security forces in a protest demonstration on this day in 2011, at the age of 26.

His mother and relatives commemorated him in a ceremony at his tomb. Such ceremonies are considered an act of protest to the Iranian regime that does not tolerate any dissent.
