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.

Sunday, August 13, 2017, the people and particularly women of Dezful, in southwestern Iran, staged a gathering in front of the Governor’s Office to protest against construction of a water channel which transfers water from the Dez River to Andimeshk.

The State Security forces attacked the protesters and used pepper gas. They also arrested a number of demonstrators.

The women participating in the protest, chanted: "SSF, SSF, shame on you, shame on you.”
