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 IRGC Commander of the Revolutionary Guards Corps in Shahroud, northeastern Iran, announced the arrest of young women and men on the charge of participating in a mixed dancing course.

“Members of a network teaching Western dances who recruited young men and women to teach them western dances, were arrested while teaching and producing a videoclip,” Hamid Damghani said.

“The IRGC Intelligence forces in Shahroud investigated and identified the group’s main location. Then the Prosecutor of Shahroud issued a judiciary warrant, sanctioning a raid during which members of this group, including four young men and two young women, were arrested while making a video together,” he added.
