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.

The IRGC commander in Babolsar (northern Iran) called for tougher restrictions on women’s presence on beaches and the observation of the mandatory veil.

Moussa Hossein Nejad said, “Regrettably, I must say that the sea has no particular custodian and officials do not feel any obligation nor do they have any motivation to deal with corruption, which often appears in the form of mal-veiling and mal-dressing on the beach... Unfortunately, no one deals with opposite sexes swimming in the in prohibited areas.”

He emphasized that such actions must be prevented. (The state-run Tasnim news agency – September 7, 2017)
