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 nursing community in Iran launched protests on August 6, 2017, in a number of cities across the country. Women nurses actively participated in these protests and insisted on their demands.  (See the photo gallery)

In the Tehran gathering in front of the Ministry of Health, protestors chanted, "Hospital is not a place for experimentation", "do not decide without me about my future", "disregard for nursing disregards social health.

" They demanded termination of the nurses training program in hospitals and in non-academic ways.

Nursing students and nurses held similar protest gatherings in Shiraz, Isfahan, Ahwaz and Bojnourd.

In Isfahan, students formed a human chain around the nursing school. More than 200 students from the nursing schools of Isfahan, Khorasgan, Najafabad and Falavarjan participated in this move.

A university professor attended the nurses’ gathering in Bojnourd said, "Since nurses protect the lives of patients, the implementation of the (hospital training) plan will take back the field of nursing for about 50 years."
