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.

Women teachers held a protest rally in front of the Governor’s Office in Kermanshah, western Iran, on September 5, 2017, demanding to be officially employed by the Education Department.

Despite years of service and experience, the teachers have not been officially hired yet and their employment status is still undetermined.

One of the protesters said, “I have ten years of experience; I'm just demanding the implementation of the law so that I could be recruited by the Education Department. I don’t think asking for employment is too big of a demand.” (The state-run ILNA news agency - September 6, 2017)
