NCRI WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

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.

Kurdistan Mothers for Peace and Reconciliation visited Dayeh Sharifeh (Sharifeh Zarini), mother of death row political prisoner Ramin Hossein Panahi, on Sunday, May 13, 2018, and expressed their solidarity. Ramin’s sister, Ms. Parvaneh Hossein Panahi, was also present.

Parvaneh’s 25-year-old daughter Nishtman Hossein Panahi committed suicide on May 1, 2018, due to pressures by the Intelligence Department of Sanandaj and upon learning of her uncle’s imminent execution.

Dayeh Sharifeh referred to the Central Prison of Sanandaj on Sunday, May 13, and again on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, to visit her son but she was told that Ramin was banned from having any family visitations.

The execution of Ramin Hossein Panahi was postponed due to pressures from international public opinion but there is no guarantee that his decree will be nullified. Being held incommunicado has increased concerns in this regard.
