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 government official announced that 12,000 cases of child abuse and 11,000 cases of domestic violence have been registered by the National Welfare Organization.

Habibollah Massoudi, the organization's deputy for social affairs, did not specify the span of time during which these cases have been recorded.

In the announcement made on March 4, 2017, Massoudi revealed that the bill to support children and youths has remained in the parliament for several years without being ratified. (The state-run ILNA news agency – March 4, 2017)
