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.

Kurdish civil activist woman, Kobra Khalandi, was sentenced to 85 days in prison for taking part in protests against the arbitrary killing of porters in Iran’s Kurdish border areas.

Ms. Khalandi must report in to the Court of Mahabad in coming days to begin serving her prison term. Mahabad is located in the West Azerbaijan Province in northwestern Iran.

The Kurdish activist woman had been arrested on September 10, 2017, in a protest gathering in Mahabad against the arbitrary killings of poor Kurdish porters. She was arrested by forces of the city’s Intelligence Department but later released on bail, temporarily.
