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.

Judiciary officials continue to detain civil rights activist Massoumeh Zia despite having received 200 million toumans from her family in March as bail to release her.

According to an informed source, prison officials claim that a suspended sentence of one year prison term in Ms. Zia's previous case has come into force and she would have to stay in prison.

Ms. Zia was arrested by intelligence agents on Friday Jan 7, 2017, at the airport as she had returned from a family visit abroad.
