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.

Young artist and former prisoner of conscience, Atena Farghadani, sketched a new cartoon mocking the sham election in Iran.

In her Facebook account, she explains, "Another four years will be added to what we have had over the past 38 years. For another four years, they will go round the circle of provincial visits and will continue to remain in power. They will sit on the saddle and we will carry the saddle and turn around ourselves. For another four years, the rulers of this land will become richer, filling their pockets with more of the national resources, and the people will remain destitute trying to earn a living."
