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.

Officials of a girls’ school in Islam Abad Village in Orumiyeh, northwestern Iran, cut the students’ hair to force them to observe the compulsory veil.

To force the girls to wear headbands beneath their scarves to cover their forehead hair, the school’s principal and master went to the court yard in the company of several State Security forces. Using scissors, they personally cut the hair of those girls whose hair stuck out of their scarves. This inhuman treatment provoked the girls’ protest.

Security forces and club wielding agents are still present in this school.

Earlier, on November 12, 2017, some 500 girl students in this school staged a protest against the compulsory veiling, where security forces poured into the school and confiscated the girls’ mobiles and deleted their clips to prevent leakage of any information on their protest.
