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.

Four activist women calling for repeal of the death sentence issued for Iranian prisoner of conscience Mohammad Ali Taheri were arrested on August 28, 2017 in front of Tehran’s Evin Prison.

The four women identified as Zahra Shafii, Melika Kavandi, Zahra Ebrahimi, and Raha Davoudian were on the second day of their sit-in outside Evin. The women used to be students of Mohammad Ali Taheri.

Zahra Ebrahimi and Raha Davoudian were transferred to the women’s ward of Evin. However, there is no news about the whereabouts of Zahra Shafii and Melika Kavandi.
