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.

Neda Eshraghi Boroujeni, student of Computer Sciences, has been expelled from the University of Kashan for being a Baha’ii, according to news published on January 20, 2018.

Kashan University’s Security summoned Neda in December to make sure she adheres to the Bahaii faith. Then they confiscated her student ID without presenting any explanations.

Earlier, Sara Shakib, student of Statistics, and Mona Eshraghi Boroujeni, Neda’s sister, had been deprived of continuing their education at Kashan University.

In paragraph 3 of the bill ratified by the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in March 1991 which has also been endorsed by the mullahs’ supreme leader Ali Khamenei “Once it is confirmed that a student adheres to Bahaiism, whether at the time admission or during their studies, she/he must be deprived of education.”

The Iranian regime has even forbidden the Bahaiis from having their own independent or online university. After dismantling the university, the instructors have been condemned to long prison sentences.
