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.

 

 

Campaigns to stop the death penalty and support women political prisoners in Iran


 

The NCRI Women’s Committee constantly monitors and surveys the various areas of violation of women’s rights and relevant international conventions by Iran’s fundamentalist regime.

Discrimination against women as institutionalized in the regime’s laws and enforced in practice, the numerous agencies in charge of suppression of women, systematic clamp down on women with the pretext of enforcing the compulsory veil, extrajudicial arrests and torture of women who defend human, women, children and other civil rights, conditions of political prisoners, child marriages and widespread illiteracy and destitution of Iranian women, the leading role of women in protest demonstrations, etc. are subjects of constant monitoring and study.

The NCRI Women’s Committee regularly publishes articles, pamphlets, monthly bulletins and annual reports to provide a factual basis for the study and a realistic evaluation of the Iranian women’s struggle for equality.

 
       
       

“Women Force for Change” is the name of a magazine published every year by the NCRI Women’s Committee on the International Women’s Day, presenting the latest positions and views of the Iranian Resistance on the issue of women and women’s struggle in Iran as well as the views of the international supporter of the movement from around the world.

One of the most glorious parts of the history of Iranian women’s struggle has been their resistance in prison, in the past and present.

The NCRI Women’s Committee endeavors to collect and compile the memoirs of former political prisoners and publish them in the form of books or single articles on the website. In this way, the Committee does its best to pay tribute to tens of thousands of Iranian women who made the ultimate sacrifice to realize their own equality and their people’s freedom.
