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.

In a letter to the General Prosecutor, Zeinab Jalalian’s lawyer wrote about his client’s refusal to accept any form of treatment.

Amir Salar Davoudi expressed serious concerns about his client’s health and underlined the responsibility of Khoy Prison officials and Khoy’s security and judicial authorities in guaranteeing Ms. Jalalian’s physical and mental health.

Mr. Davoudi declared, “My client’s therapy strike will continue until her demands are met.”
