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.

The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) revoked the Iranian regime’s right to host the juvenile world games. FIVB said no international hosting will be granted to Iran until Ghoncheh Ghavami is released and women are permitted to attend matches played in Iranian stadiums.
