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 number of women gathered outside Tehran’s Revolutionary Court in protest to the death sentence handed down to prisoner of conscience Mohammad-Ali Taheri, founder of Cosmic Mysticism (Erfan-e Halgheh) who had completed his five-year sentence. Officials refused to release him and now the court has issued him a death sentence.

Taheri’s lawyer, Mahmoud Alizadeh Tabatabaii, announced on Sunday, August 27, that his client had received a death sentence and that they would appeal.
