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 recent massive earthquake in western Iran widowed many women and destroyed the life assets of many more.  

The state-run media announced that some 100 women lost their husbands in the earthquake and became single mothers to head their households.

The announced figure is a conservative estimate based on the death toll of 520 as declared by the official media in Iran. The actual figures, however, are much higher.

A Majlis deputy told the mullahs’ parliament that at least 1,000 people had died in the earthquake, while local residents say thousands have been killed. (The state-run Salamat News website – November 19, 2017)
