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.

Imprisoned civil rights activist Athena Daemi has been suffering from kidney infection after nine days of her hunger strike.

Doctors of Evin Prison's infirmary told her on April 16 that the infection had also spread to her digestive system and was deteriorating.

Prison authorities, however, have done nothing to improve her conditions or respond to her demands.

Athena Daemi started her hunger strike on April 8, 2017, in protest to the sentence issued for imprisonment of her sisters.
