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.

Commander of the State Security Force in Boushehr (southern Iran) announced that his forces will deal decisively with women who breach the culture of Hijab and veiling.

Hamidreza Khezri Tangestani declared, “In light of the rising heat in Boushehr where more and more people like to go swimming in the beaches, there are people who make a mockery of the culture of Hijab and Chastity… The SSF will be decisive in dealing with those who breach the norms.” (The state-run Tabnak website, July 17, 2017)
