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.

Women of Iranian Resistance

This is my dear brother Hanif. I loved him and still love him more than anything in the world.

Hanif was shot dead in an attack on Camp Ashraf on July 29 and 30, in 2009. 

History has seen a long list of women, standing out as legends…

With her penetrating gaze, she looks around. After hearing the questions, she reflects for a moment and begins replying with a sweet smile. The passage of time and life’s adversities have not affected her cheerfulness nor her expressive words, perhaps because she made her decision years ago and pledged to fight as long as it may take.

I was just a little girl, perhaps about 7, when my memory was embedded with the intimate relations I had with my father, as a “mentor of struggle,” the day when he taught me to be generous and give away my teddy bear to a poor child instead of keeping it for myself.

From all my life experiences, the only phrase I would like to leave behind is, “It’s only your cause that can provide you guidance in life.” 

My name’s Azam Fatemi. I come from Saveh, a beautiful city in Iran’s Central Province.

These days remind me of the throbbing days of summer 1981. They also take me back to the post-Revolution days of 1979.

As far as I can remember, I have always sought to figure out the laws.

Scientific laws and any law in any discovery, in any profession and in any realm.

I also knew that in any realm of science, one needs to do various experiments to discover the laws and how an entity can finds its way to move forward.

The efforts and struggle of women of the Iranian Resistance have guaranteed freedom and equality for women in future Iran. Someday, Iranian women will taste equality and we can all play our role in determining the future of our country.

Hi, my name is Laila Delfi.

My beloved sister, Maryam, and I are members of the Iranian Resistance.

We come from the beautiful city of Ahwaz in southern Iran whose people are famous for their hospitality, exuberance, and livelihood.

Hello. My name's Fatemeh Akbari Monfared.

I'm the sister of political prisoner Maryam Akbari Monfared, a woman with two daughters who's been imprisoned for eight years without a single-day leave. The woman who has filed suit against the Iranian regime officials in her effort to seek justice for our massacred sister and brothers. And this is why she was deprived of her weekly visits by her husband and children.
