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 Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran condemns the clerical regime's suppressive measures against two Kurdish political prisoners, Ms. Afsaneh Bayazidi and Ms. Hajar Piri.

 

The NCRI Women's Committee urges international human rights and women's rights organizations and NGOs to undertake urgent action to attend to the situation of all female political prisoners and stop the Iranian regime's pressures on them.

 

The two female political prisoners were arrested in Naghadeh and Mahabad (western Iran) on the charge of acting against national security and disseminating anti-government propaganda. They are presently detained in the Central Prison of Kerman on internal exile.

 

To increase pressure on them, they are held in the same ward with ordinary prisoners.

 

On November 28, forces of the Ministry of Intelligence raided their cell, humiliated them and confiscated part of their personal belongings.
