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.

Managed by female judges, units of the Special Women’s Patrol of the Prosecutor’s Office of Qom, Iran, are going to inspect places exclusively for women, including ateliers, pools, gymnasiums and hairdressers.

Mehdi Kaheh, the Public Prosecutor of Qom, announced this and added, “The activities of the Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Women’s Patrol teams are going to be stepped up… These teams have so far visited more than 45 hairdressers and 10 pools and issued legal notices to each of the places that had problems or breached the law… If they do not correct their conduct, they will be dealt with legally.” (The state-run ISNA news agency, August 9, 2017)
