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.

The Iranian Judiciary announced February 28, 2017, that civil and women's rights activist Farzaneh Jalali was accused of acting against national security. They refused to accept her lawyer, Mostafa Ahmadian.

Farzaneh Jalali has been detained since Thursday, February 23, 2017, in the detention center of the Department of Intelligence in Kermanshah (western Iran).

She is a graduate of anthropology from Tehran University. She was the former director of Tehran University's morning newspaper. She was deprived of continuing her education because of her student activities despite getting the highest marks in the admission test for master's degree in 2010.
