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.

In an interview on March 17, 2017, the mother of Marjan Davari called for abolition of her daughter's death sentence.

Ms. Davari's mother said, "Marjan did not deserve the death penalty. I don't know what happened in the middle of the way that the page turned… As a mother I am burning. I hope that not only my own daughter but other youths would not go on the stool."

Marjan Davari, 50, a researcher and translator, was arrested on September 24, 2015, when the Path of Knowledge Institute was shut down and its instructors arrested. She received a death sentence on March 12, 2017.
