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.

Faezeh Abdipour, a religious minority activist woman, was arrested on December 31, 2017, in Tehran. She has been on hunger strike since.

Ms. Abdipour was visiting a Gonabadi Dervish hospitalized at Tehran’s Day Hospital along with three other people when she was violently arrested.

Those arrested were first taken to the Ministry of Intelligence office at Enghelab Ave. and subsequently transferred to Ward 209 of Evin Prison.

Faezeh Abdipour is a Gonabadi Dervish and a student activist. It is not clear why she has been arrested and detained.
