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.

Five residents of Mahabad, western Iran, including a Kurdish woman, were arrested by security forces on Sunday, September 10, 2017. The woman was identified as Kobra Khalandi. The activists were arrested for participation in a gathering in support of Baneh residents who are protesting the arbitrary killing and shooting deaths of Kurdish porters by security forces.

A number of Kurdish citizens have been arrested over the past few days by security forces in Baneh, Sanandaj, Kermanshah and Mahabad in protest rallies against the arbitrary killing of porters.
