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.

Some 30 women, pre-school teachers, staged a gathering outside the office of the governor of Golestan Province in the city of Golestan, northern Iran, to protest the uncertainty surrounding their employment status.

The protest took place in the morning of September 4, 2017. Women protesters wanted their employment status determined and settled permanently.

One of the protesters said that despite the fact that according to the law, the employment status of all pre-school teachers must be determined, there are still many provinces in Iran where the employment status of pre-school teachers have not been determined.
