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.

Iran's lady of poetry is no longer among us, but will be forever remembered through her beautiful poems depicting the pain of our people and country.

In memory of her we say: "Iran, our beautiful homeland which we will build once again."

As she wrote: I will re-build you, dear land...

(Simin Behbahani was an renowned Iranian poet who passed away at the age of 87 in hospital in Tehran on August 19, 2014)
