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.

Tehran’s Friday prayer leader, Sedighi, stressed on the need to confront women in Iran over their covering and hijab inside their cars. He said, “The issue of hijab is an obligation stated in the Quran. If someone commits a crime in her car, it will be (considered as) an obvious crime. In such cases, not only the culprit must be dealt with based on the ruling of the Quran, but she must also be dealt with according to the law passed by the parliament.” (The state-run ISNA news agency, August 8, 2017)
