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.

Atena Daemi's two sisters and a brother-in-law were summoned to the Prosecutor's Office of Evin Prison on December 27, 2016.

They must report in to the Prosecutor's Office within five days simultaneous with the day when Atena Daemi would be under interrogation.

The reason for this summoning is the report of law enforcement agents.

A source close to Ms. Daemi's family said, "Her sisters and brother-in-law have not done anything illegal. They were in the house, at the time of Ms. Daemi's arrest."

Earlier, on December 25, Ms. Daemi drafted a defense against the new charges levelled by the Revolutionary Guards Corps and protested the illegal process of her arrest and the unfounded charges by the IRGC.
