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.

The eyes of Iranian Kurdish political prisoner Zeinab Jalalian are not in good condition, said Ali Jalalian, the prisoner’s father.

Zeinab Jalalian has been imprisoned since 2008. She is not permitted to leave prison for treatment in a hospital.

Mr. Jalalian said the authorities do not agree to grant her a medical leave, nor do they allow her transfer to a hospital outside prison.

The 35-year-old prisoner has been sentenced to life imprisonment and is detained in Khoy prison, in East Azerbaijan Province. Jalalian has been deprived of prison leave throughout her captivity.
