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.

Iranian National Gymnastics Champion

Place of Birth: Gorgan

Date of Birth: 1962

Date of Martyrdom: 1981

Place of martyrdom: Tehran

Nazanin Azimzadeh, a gymnastics champion, was executed by the Iranian regime in 1981, when she was only 19 years old.

Nazanin was one of the six women who were initial members of the Iranian National Gymnastics team, which was assembled in Gorgan city after monumental efforts. However, instead of appreciating the sportswomen, the Iranian regime executed national champions like Nazanin, only to extend its rule. The history of Iranian sports has been covered with the blood of title holders and champions who were tortured and executed because of their opposition to the mullahs’ regime.

The resistance of these heroines has only strengthened the cause of the Iranian women for a free and democratic country. A day will come when Iranian women will wipe this misogynistic regime off the beautiful country of the sun and the lion and can freely participate in the activities and sports of their choice.

A few pictures are left of this national champion.
