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.

A group of Iranian Bazaar merchants and businessmen in Tehran issued a declaration, laying emphasis on the role of young women and girls in all the scenes of the Iranian people’s struggle and paying tribute to those who gave their lives in this uprising.

In parts of this declaration, they said, “Iranian women fearlessly confront oppression and dictatorship. Today, unfortunately, women do not enjoy their minimum rights and they do not have the right to choose their own clothing. They are violently attacked and arrested in the streets. But these problems have not undermined Iranian women’s will and determination in fighting in step with their countrymen until until the clerical regime is overthrown.”
