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 and women’s rights activist Safieh Gharebaghi was arrested by agents of the Intelligence Department of Zanjan as she was leaving home on Monday morning, July 17, 2017.

According to a close relative, a few hours after her arrest, Ms. Gharebaghi was returned home along with three agents who conducted a house search.

During the search, her laptop, notebooks, books and personal documents were confiscated.

Ms. Gharebaghi told her family that she has been charged with dissemination of propaganda against the government, distortion of public opinion and publication of falsities.
