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 Tehran court sentenced a middle-aged woman to a year of forced labor in Behesht-e Zahra’s washing room to clean the dead before burial, for her alleged illicit relations with a strange man.
This middle-aged woman was a government employee, living in Tehran away from her husband due to family problems.

She was planning for divorce. Her husband filed a complaint against her after seeing her in a film footage along with another man.
The sentence was handed out without determining the nature of their relationship, and despite the accused woman’s denial of having committed adultery. (The state-run ROKNA website – December 25, 2017)
