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.

Commander of the State Security Force announced the average number of women arrested everyday under the pretext of mal-veiling.

Addressing the national gathering of Iran's prosecutors in Mashhad on Thursday, September 29, 2016, Hossein Ashtari said, "Some 2000 women who wear improper clothing are arrested every day in Tehran and some other provinces."

Ashtari added, "We have submitted a plan proposing social deprivations and deprivation from services by the Islamic Republic, for clothing abnormalities and unconventional behavior." (The state-run Tasnim news agency – September 29, 2016)
