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 Kurdish woman, Touran Mehraban, has been beaten up and tortured in jail after being arrested last week.

The mother of this arrested student said she had been informed of the torture when she met her daughter on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at the detention center of the Department of Intelligence of Orumiyeh, capital of West Azerbaijan Province, NW Iran.

Ms. Mehraban was studying at Nazlou University of Orumiyeh when she was arrested on Saturday, December 31, 2017, by security forces on the charge of taking part in protest gatherings against economic corruption.
