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.

On Thursday, August 10, 2017, a woman from the city of Divandareh in the Iranian Kurdistan, ended her life by hanging herself. The woman was identified as Farideh Vaisi.

Her 16-year-old son, Behnam Vaisi, had hanged himself a few months ago.

Another woman from Dehgolan also hanged herself and died on Friday, August 14, 2017. She was identified as Somayyeh Vaisi, 20, with a 15-month-old baby. She was from the village of Gedmyran Oliya.
