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.

One of the lawyers of Ms. Marjan Davari announced on March 15, 2017, that her team of lawyers had objected to the death sentence issued for this writer and researcher.

Erfanian said it has not been any decision yet as to which branch would handle Ms. Davari's case. There are some points that the lawyers do not agree with and are going to explain about them in future, he added.

Marjan Davari was arrested on September 24, 2015, at her residence in Karaj. She was detained at the notorious Ward 209 of Evin Prison and spent three months in solitary confinement. She was sentenced to death on March 12, 2017.
