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

Samar Almogren - Journalist Saudi Arabia

Actually I congratulate Madame Rajavi for this path of struggle that we follow with great enthusiasm. Hopefully we will be ambassadors  of Muslim women. This long struggle of Madame Maryam Rajavi and the advancement the Iranian resistance has achieved comes from a deep believe that there is no difference between men and women; all are in the equality movement.

Saadat Saeed - Journalist , Yemen

Madame Rajavi, allow me to express my gratitude to receive an invitation from you, a woman with such capability to lead its people to  freedom. The symbol that I wished in the world I found in you, Madame Maryam Rajavi.

Hiam Zehlora - Syrian Activist

In my short experience and 3 arrests during the Syrian revolution, I had the opportunity to work in the Syrian resistance. Today there  are many Syrian women fighters whose faces are deep in my heart… the death toll in Syrian and women who died have reached more than 3,100.

Tahya Mint Lehbib - President of the General Union for Women in Mauritania

Ghada El Gohary - Head of Finance Centre, Egypt

Obviously history repeats itself. Today Egypt led or passed through the same political path that Iran did some 30 years ago. Ancient  Egyptian civilization values represent the rules of which human heritage are extracted. One of the most important aspects of these  values is the importance of management of women’s work in society.

Dr. Fawzia Al Ashmawi - Islamic Expert and President of Forum for European Muslim Women Geneva

We the Egyptian women are in the same situation as the women in Iran are, unfortunately with a difference that we don’t have Maryam Rajavi to lead the Egyptian women’s movement against this fascism…

Carole Fontaine - US scholar and Professor of Biblical Theology

I like to dedicate this message to our dear sisters at Ashraf and camp Liberty, to our brothers there as well, and to all of you gathered here who have come from such distances to bring us messages of hope and clarity.

Donna Hughes - Professor and chair of women’s studies in University of Rhode Island

Today I want to focus on one woman who was a political prisoner in Iran for 5 years. And she spent 35 years of her life being a warrior against religious fascism in Iran.

Paris -March 10, 2012 - International conference: Women's equality activists support women's uprisings in Arab world and women

Madame Rajavi, distinguished guests, dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen, it’s really a great privilege to be with you again today on this very important occasion.  Thank you for the gift from Ashraf and I have a feeling that we could send a message to Ashraf that if they have so many friends all over the world, they should succeed.
