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.

Anna Caroline Maxwell (March 14, 1851 – January 2, 1929), was a nurse who came to be known by the nickname "the American Florence Nightingale".

Her pioneering activities were crucial to the growth of professional nursing in the United States.

In the Spanish–American War she organized nurses for the military. Through her actions, the Army Nurse Corps was established and nurses were later given the rank of officer. She helped design the uniform for US army nurses. During World War I, France awarded her the “Medal of Honor for Public Health”.
