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.

A state-run media outlet reported on 19 May, “Patrols confronting improper clothing and mal-veiling has been set-up in Tehran’s main streets. Based on reports, agents are seen stationed in major roads and taking action against women with improper clothing and hijab.”

According to the plan that started on 17 May, State Security Forces agents are assigned to board women into their vehicles based on the pretext of improper veiling.
