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.

Civil rights activist Atena Daemi who was being sick as a result of hunger strike was taken to Tehran's Taleghani Hospital at midnight of Saturday, May 13, but was returned to Evin Prison despite poor health.

She is suffering from constant nausea and her stomach has lost the ability to hold water.

Daemi started a hunger strike on April 8, 2017, in protest to the sentencing of her sisters on spurious charges.
