Campaigns to stop the persecution of thousands of Iranian women who brave all dangers to participate in Iran protests for freedom, justice and equality, and to convey their voice to the international community.
Our projects and campaigns to stop the death penalty and support women political prisoners in Iran.
The NCRI Women’s Committee actively sponsors and participates in activities to stop the death penalty in Iran.
Another major project sponsored and supported by the NCRI Women’s Committee is to save the lives of political prisoners in Iran. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic, the committee monitors conditions of female political prisoners who are not only deprived of their needed medical treatment as a way of torture and gradual killing but exposes them to the virus in overcrowded and plagued dungeons.
Nurses make up one of the most oppressed women in Iran as demonstrated during the coronavirus pandemic. They are not regularly paid despite working overtime and round the clock since the outbreak of the pandemic. The clerical regime officials say between 20,000 and 30,000 nurses have been infected with the virus and 100s have died of COVID-19.
Shedding light on the situation of nurses and getting support for them is one of our major projects.
As one of our projects, the NCRI Women’s Committee constantly monitors and surveys the various areas of violation of women’s rights and relevant international conventions by Iran’s fundamentalist regime.
Discrimination against women as institutionalized in the regime’s laws and enforced in practice, the numerous agencies in charge of suppression of women, systematic clamp down on women with the pretext of enforcing the compulsory veil, extrajudicial arrests and torture of women who defend human, women, children and other civil rights, conditions of political prisoners, child marriages and widespread illiteracy and destitution of Iranian women, the leading role of women in protest demonstrations, etc. are subjects of constant monitoring and study.
The NCRI Women’s Committee regularly publishes articles, pamphlets, monthly bulletins and annual reports to provide a factual basis for the study and a realistic evaluation of the Iranian women’s struggle for equality.
“Women Force for Change” is the name of a magazine published every year by the NCRI Women’s Committee on the International Women’s Day, presenting the latest positions and views of the Iranian Resistance on the issue of women and women’s struggle in Iran as well as the views of the international supporter of the movement from around the world as another one of our projects.
One of the most glorious parts of the history of Iranian women’s struggle has been their resistance in prison, in the past and present.
The NCRI Women’s Committee endeavors to collect and compile the memoirs of former political prisoners and publish them in the form of books or single articles on the website. As one of our projects, the Committee does its best to pay tribute to tens of thousands of Iranian women who made the ultimate sacrifice to realize their own equality and their people’s freedom.
