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.

In an open letter of protest, women political prisoners in Iran’s Evin Prison have demanded the removal of restrictions on their imprisoned male relatives and the opportunity to contact them.

The letter was written in the wake of the relocation of a number of political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison, Karaj.

Following the transfer, prison authorities forbid any and all contacts with them.

While protesting the imposition of the new restrictions, the women political prisoners in Evin called in their letter for the resumption of their visits with their husbands and brothers and lifting of medical and medicinal ban presently in place.

This letter has been written and signed by Mahvash Shahriari, Fariba Kamalabadi, Elham Hosseinabadi Farahani, Zahra Zehtabchi, Elham Barmaki, Fatemeh Mosanna, Narges Mohammadi, Maryam Akbari Monfared, Golrokh Iraee, Azita Rafizadeh, Nasim Bagheri and Atena Daemi.
