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.

Forces of the municipality of Ahwaz attacked and wounded a woman peddling in the street on December 6, 2016. She was hit by electric shockers.

The son of the defenseless woman explained the attack by municipality forces as the following:

"A group of ten men from the Municipality's Implementation Office, armed with shockers, walked into Khansari Street on December 6, 2016. My 70-year-old mother sets up her stuff in front of my own shop. They attacked her with electric shockers and threw her to the ground."

Ahwaz is the capital of the southern province of Khuzistan.
