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.

A young mother of six, is on the verge of execution in Iran.

The young woman, married at the age of 15, had been arrested along with her month-old infant on the road to Sistan & Baluchistan Province in southeastern Iran and transferred to a prison in Mashhad on the charge of carrying narcotics.

About her prison condition, she said, “Since I had a breastfed infant, I took her with me to prison. Recently, she got sick. I was worried about her so I called my old mother and asked her to come and take her. Now, I’m left without my children... The nightmare of death does not let me sleep even for a moment.”

The identity of this young woman has not been published in the state-run media. (The state-run ROKNA news agency – June 2, 2017)
