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.

Women imprisoned in the Women's Ward of Evin Prison face numerous health problems after they have been denied hot water.

An informed source asserted, "Hot water has been cut off virtually every day over the past month after the heating system was turned off much sooner than the weather gets warm."

There are 31 prisoners detained in the Women's Ward of Evin Prison, most of them on political or national security charges.
