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.

Women actively participated in at least three protest gatherings in Iran on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.

In Tehran, contract teachers the majority of whom were women, staged a gathering outside the mullahs’ Parliament, demanding determination of their employment status.

In Kermanshah, western Iran, depositors cheated by the Gelim and Gebeh Company gathered outside the Governor’s Office and demanded their money back. State Security forces attacked the gathering and beat up the protestors including one of the protesting women. The SSF also used pepper gas to disperse the crowd.

In the northern province of Gilan, depositors gathered outside the Caspian Institute’s branch in this province and compelled them to close down the branch.
