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.

Mohammad Yazdi, head of the Iranian regime’s Assembly of Experts has said police must confront the issue of improper veiling and added the struggle against “improper veiling” must start from government apparatuses. One cannot actually do anything about the problem of hijab by writing articles, books and other texts.

Yazdi in another part of his speech lashed out at to some universities, professors and students, saying they are infected by Western culture and distanced from Islamic values.
