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.

Fatemeh Zolghadr member of the women's faction in the Iranian parliament, said, “The bill entitled Provision of Security for Women Against Violence must be comprehensive and complete, so that it would cover all forms of violence against women. There is currently no legal definition in the bill for some forms of violence, and there is no punishment for them, either.” (The state-run ICANA news agency – August 30, 2017)
