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.

Agents of the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) have called Maryam Karimbeigi and threatened to burn their house.

Maryam's mother, Shahnaz Akmali, was arrested on January 25, 2017, and taken to Evin Prison.

Maryam's brother, Mostafa Karimbeigi, was killed by security forces during the 2009 uprising in Tehran.
