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.

Fire at a girls' school in the city of Meshginshahr, northwest Iran, led to the complete destruction of the roof. The school was shut down in the wake of this incident and 300 students have remained out of school on the eve of the new academic year.

The Governor of Meshginshahr, Mir Ali Rahimizadeh, said, “In the current situation and given the limited time left before the school year, it is not possible to repair the roof and make it ready for the start of the new school year.” (The state-run Mehr news agency– September 8, 2017)
