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 number of girl students of nursing in Tehran boycotted their exams and held a rally on Monday, July 10, 2017, to protest a new directive by the Ministry of Health.

According to this directive, hospitals will undertake training of nursing students and universities will cooperate with them in this regard. This is while in principle, universities are in charge of the training of nurses.

One of the nurses who has graduated from the Medical School of Tehran University put a post in the social media which read, “Why doesn’t the Ministry of Health employ the nurses who are presently out of work? Why do they want to train new nurses in hospitals? Their objective is to spend less and have compliant forces. In this way, they are jeopardizing people’s lives.” (The state-run Eghtesad Online, ISNA news agency, July 9 and 10, 2017)
