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.

At least 400 women are among those arrested in recent protests in Izeh, in Khuzistan Province, SW Iran.

The arrests in this city have been extensive. All members of some families have been arrested.

Local eyewitnesses say most of the arrested women in this city have been taken to a drug addiction rehabilitation camp.

One of the women detained in this camp who was able to call her family told them that they had not been given anything to eat, except drinking water, in the four days since their arrest.
