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.

Atena Daemi, a human rights activist and advocate of children's rights, went on a hunger strike to protest the prison sentences issued her sisters Ensieh and Haniyeh.

Earlier, on April 3, she had made a protest but there was no response to her demands, so she went on hunger strike.

Ms. Daemi is presently detained in the Women's Ward of Evin Prison.
