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.

Human rights advocate and activist mother, Shahnaz Akmali, was temporarily freed from jail on Saturday, February 18, 2017, on a 100-million-touman bail ($30,800) until her trial convenes.

Ms. Akmali was in jail for 24 days in Ward 209 of the Evin Prison.

She was arrested in the morning of January 25, 2017, following an Intelligence Ministry raid on her home. She was subsequently taken to the Evin Prison.

Shahnaz Akmali's son, Mostafa Karimbeigi, was shot and killed by security forces during the 2009 uprising.
