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.

Mrs. Massoumeh Nemati, mother of the imprisoned civil rights activist Atena Daemi, paid a short visit to her in Evin Prison. In a brief post written after the meeting, she stressed on the need to attend to the demands of prisoners who are on hunger strike.

Mrs. Nemati wrote in her post, "I thought they would care for my daughter… I thought they would hear her voice that demands recognition of women's rights to choose their own clothes… But, no! No official listens to her… My daughter's life is in danger. Please be the voice of my daughter."

Atena Daemi, defenders of child laborers, has been on hunger strike since April 8, 2017, in protest to the jail sentences issued for her sisters.
