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.

Remarks at roundtable discussion, "Women in Leadership, the Experience of the Iranian Resistance" – Tirana, IWD 2017

Each day, looking around what’s going on in the world, I have only one question. How is it possible in the 21st century? Why? I’m trying to find the answer. Because if you look around, still there are worse, more and more weapons (instead of) friendship.

Thank you very much and thank you Madam Rajavi. I wish that I could pick you up and take you with me back to Washington.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen.

I am in an unusual position I think to some extent here, because I live in a country which has not been invaded for over a thousand years really successfully. Where we have had women’s suffrage for almost one of the longest times anyway in the world, not quite the longest. Where we have been free.

Excerpts of remarks at roundtable discussion, "Women in Leadership, the Experience of the Iranian Resistance" – Tirana, IWD 2017

When I was invited last year, it was for us to see how this struggle can learn from the way we organized the anti-apartheid movement in the 60s and 70s and 80s. And what's interesting is that when we tried to approach different people they said no, no, no, no, that’s a terrorist organization, the PMOI. And when we said no, no, no, it's led by this woman and have you seen some of the tapes of what she says, nobody had seen them. So we played some of this stuff from Paris and we’ve really made a lot of progress.
