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.

Another one of the arrested women has been identified.

Civil activist Sepideh Farahan (Farahabadi) was arrested on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, in Tehran’s Enghelab Square by security forces and transferred to an unknown location.

The arrests of at least 30 women have been documented so far. Based on reliable sources of the National Council of Resistance, at least 3000 people have been arrested in the course of the uprising, 35% of whom are university students and 90 per cent are youths under 25 years of age.
