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.

The General and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Qom announced on July 7, 2017, that the plan to oversee “chastity and hijab (veil)” would be stepped up with the help of the Bassij and the State Security Force in Qom.

Mehdi Kahe added, “The plan for moral security patrols which focuses on chastity and veil, has been prepared for implementation by the special patrol team of the Prosecutor’s Office.  The plan has already been carried out in several areas, including Safa’iyeh, Salariyeh and 45 meters of Saduq.” (The state-run ISNA news agency, July 7, 2017)
