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.

Sarah Fuller (February 15, 1836-August 1, 1927) was an American educator.

She was born in Massachusetts. In 1869, she became principal at the newly formed Boston School for Deaf-Mutes. In 1871, the school staff were trained in the skill of teaching deaf children how to speak by Alexander Graham Bell. Sarah became an advocate of this practice, as well as the promotion of education for deaf children starting at the earliest age possible.

She founded the Home for Little Deaf Children in 1902, and retired as a principal in 1910.
