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.

Christian prisoner of conscience, Maryam Naghash Zargaran, is presently in dire conditions suffering from severe physical weakness and weight loss. She is denied badly needed special care due to the heart operation she underwent last year.

Ms. Zargaran has been imprisoned since July 19, 2013, for disseminating propaganda against the state.
