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.

A group of Kurdish women staged a protest rally on September 7, 2017, in Baneh, in the Kurdistan of Iran.

They protested the shooting and arbitrary killing of Kurdish porters by security forces.

In the morning of September 4, 2017, the State Security forces in the border area of Baneh shot and killed two Kurdish porters who were 21 and 45 years old.

The deaths have led to widespread outrage among residents of Baneh.
