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.

Thirty-six individuals including 8 women were arrested during a raid on a house in Birjand, capital of South Khorassan Province, eastern Iran.

The Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Birjand, Hossein Moghaddas, said the arrested women had previous record of breaching the dress code and they were taken to jail.

Moghaddas said “the place where the party was being held will be examined and sealed as a center for corruption.” (The state-run Serat.com – January 8, 2018)

While the regime faces widespread protests in the country, they do not ease up on cracking down on people at their residences.
