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.

State-run reactionary groups disrupted a concert in the southern Iranian city of Mahdasht under the pretext of being a “mixed” event. State-run ‘Parsine’ website covered a speech delivered by the city’s Friday prayer leader stressing, “These concerts have no limits. Soon, they won’t be satisfied with this either and they will be saying women must come to sing for us too.”
