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 request for revision of the case of Nargess Mohammadi sentenced to 10 additional years in prison was turned down by the court.

Ms. Mohammadi's lawyer, Mahmoud Behzadi, announced on April 28, 2017, that their appeal for revision of her client's case had been turned down by the 36th Branch of the Primary Revision Court of Tehran.

"We submitted an appeal to the Judiciary for revision of the case. However, our appeal was rejected by the 33rd Branch of the Supreme Court," Behzadi said. (The state-run ISNA news agency, April 28, 2017)
