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.

Retired women held two simultaneous protests in Tehran and Sari (capital of Mazandaran Province in northern Iran) in the morning of September 16, 2017.

In Tehran, more than 2000 protesters gathered in front of the Vahdat Hall. Tehran retirees were joined by colleagues from the provinces of Isfahan, Central, south, north and Razavi Khorassan, Gilan, Mazandaran, Kermanshah, and Alborz.

In Sari, the retired women gathered outside the Governor’s Office. Despite intervention of the State Security forces who tore up their banners and tried to disperse the crowd, the women protesters remained in the place and expressed their demands which included their pay raise.
