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.

She lost her father when she was very young and their family experienced much hardship but with her own hard work, she managed to finish her high school education and gain admission to one of Tehran's best universities, the Poly Technique, where she got acquainted with PMOI supporters and began her anti-government activities.

After the Revolution, she joined the organization and got actively involved in organizing the PMOI sympathizers in the capital.
