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 number of Iranian women climbed the Damavand mountain, north of Tehran, to commemorate the defenseless porters arbitrarily killed by the State Security forces on the western border of Iran.

In recent days, mass protests have been held in the city of Baneh (Iranian Kurdistan Province) in protest to the systematic and arbitrary killings of porters who earn a living by carrying heavy weights. They are shot and killed indiscriminately by the SSF.
