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.

Rouhani’s deputy in women and family affairs admitted that women are absent in high-level management posts in Iran. She also noted “the unjust outlook on women” in the regime’s laws.

In a meeting planned for exchanging views on women’s affairs and programs, Massoumeh Ebtekar revealed the official tampering of statistics and said, “It is claimed that 30% of women have been deployed in executive posts. It must not be forgotten, however, that women must not only be recruited in mid-level administrative posts, but also in decision making and high-level management positions. This is while we see that women almost disappear in senior management positons.” She also admitted in her remarks that the “laws’ outlook on women is unjust.” (The state-run ISNA news agency – October 31, 2017)
