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 mullahs’ supreme leader Ali Khamenei once again reiterated his misogynist views regarding women’s bicycling and activities on the internet.

Under the pretext of responding to religious questions, he said speaking, teasing and laughing with the other sex on the cyber space, whether in the form of text, voice and video or even a mere like or follow would create a corrupt atmosphere and were not permissible.

In response to another question, he conditioned every contact on the internet on “temporary marriage” and went on by describing the conditions for a religious marriage.

Khamenei reiterated that “women’s bicycling in public areas and in places that could be seen by strange men is not allowed.” (The state-run ILNA news agency – November 26, 2017)
