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 large number of women among some 100 retired teachers staged a protest in front of the Budget and Planning Organization in Tehran on Tuesday morning, April 18, 2017.

One of the protesters said, "We demand to receive our termination-of-service reward, proper balancing of pensions, and improvement of medical services provided by insurance." (The state-run ILNA news agency – April 18, 2017)

Earlier on March 12, 2017, over 10,000 working and retired teachers staged protest demonstrations in Tehran and other cities to express their demands.
