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 contract teachers of the north Iranian province of Mazandaran staged a protest gathering in front of the Governor’s Office in Sari to protest their undetermined employment status.

The gathering by some 100 women was held on September 10, 2017. They demand improvement of their working conditions.

The protesters said the Education Department of Mazandaran was supposed to resolve the status of contract teachers two years ago, after a directive issued to the provinces. However, the directive has not been implemented after two years and the Education Department recruits retired teachers instead of the teachers working on temporary contracts who must be officially employed on a permanent basis by the department.
