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.

IWD Speeches

Foreword by Sarvnaz Chitsaz, Chair of NCRI’s Women Committee

«I firmly believe in a future where women are free to lead and contribute to their societies and will be the source to ratify misogyny and it is here that we must build an international from against fundamentalism.»

Michèle Alliot-Marie - Former French Defense and Interior Minister

And it is precisely because I have to tell you, wom¬en are the first victims of the war, their values, their reason for living, lead them to be the first to act. And we must support them.

Linda Chavez - Former White House Director of Public Liaison

This is a tragedy; this is tragedy of huge proportions. There were rockets fired, 40 rockets fired into Camp Liberty after the government of Iraq and, I must say, after the government of the United States promised that if those living in Camp Ashraf would only move to Camp Liberty they would be protected, they would be resettled and they would have their freedom. Those promises have not only been broken, they have been broken with blood on the hands of those who made those promises.

Antonella Mularoni Present Captain Regent and Former French Defense and Interior Minister

Dear friends, ladies and gentlemen,
I am extremely pleased to attend this conference together with women from different parts of the world.

Ingrid Betancourt - French Colombian politician and former senator

We will not accept that Maryam Rajavi will be anymore alone in the international scene. We will be with you, all the time, until we arrive to the final day of liberation of Iran.

Anissa Boumediene - Aude de Thuin - President of the Women’s Forum for Economy and Society in France - Former Algerian first lady

Once again we are gathered to commemorate March 8, Women’s Day. Today I prefer to substitute another expression: celebrate. The equal struggle of women with men in all fields, economic, scientific, social, cultural and political.

Neila Linen - Chair of Belgian state women’s committee

On the international women’s day, I want to begin with saluting all my brave sisters in Ashraf and Liberty who have been standing up against this brutal and misogynous rule of the mullahs. You have today thousands of women in all corners of the world who think of you and your fight for security and safety and get encouragement from your bravery.

Merete Riisager  - Chair of women’s committee of the Danish parliament

Women of camp Liberty, you have our eyes upon you and you have our support.
 
It is a great honor for me to be here joining all these men and women to continue struggle for human rights, democracy and personal freedom of Iranian women. I cannot even begin to understand the suffering of Iranian women and the bravery of men and women living in camp Ashraf and liberty.

Katrin Gunnarsdottir - Former Minister of Education - Iceland

Dear Madam Rajavi, friends of Iranian Resistance movement, and other distinguished guests It is a great pleasure for me to be able to attend this important event. There is a resistance fight that you are all conducting. It is remarkable and admirable and will hopefully results in a regime change whereby the fundamentalist religious dictatorship in your country will be replaced by a proper democratic government.

Cynthia Fleury  - Philosopher and professor at the American University in Paris

Dear Maryam, Dear Friends
We are together again for sad news. The death of seven people and wounding of dozens in the last attack on Camp Liberty.
