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.

In the four months since March this year, 255 women have filed complaints against their husbands’ abuse with the forensics offices in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, southwestern Iran.

In the same period last year, this number was 237, indicating a 12.23 per cent increase in the number of battered women filing complaints in this province. (The state-run Bam-e Dena website – August 21, 2017)

It should be noted that not all women file complaint against domestic violence fearing lack of government support in the face of their husbands’ reprisal.
