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.

Born in 1960 in Tehran, Azar was one of the daughters of the famous and popular Rezaii family who had lost four of their children in the struggle against the Shah's regime. So, she had been involved in the struggle since very young age and even imprisoned at age 14.

After the fall of the Shah, she joined the PMOI and worked with the students' department.

Azar was married to Moussa Khiabani, deputy to the PMOI leader. She was slain with her unborn fetus at the time of the attack on February 8.
