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.

Iran’s girls’ basketball team was removed from the Asian U16 games because of the Iranian federation’s $325K debt to FIBA.

The team was to take part in the official event for the first time after 37 years.

In response to reporters, Mahmoud Mashhoun, head of the Iranian Basketball Federation, only said, “I would be present in the meetings and will try to solve the problem.” (The state-run ISNA news agency – October 21, 2017)

The Iranian regime has demonstrated outright incompetence in managing sports, and particularly, women’s sports. Iranian female athletes do not enjoy any official support by the government.
