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.

With protesters joining from other Iranian provinces, the retired government employees continued their protest for a fifth day on November 4, 2017, in front of the Budget and Planning Organization in Tehran. They had initially announced that their protest was set for four days.

Retirees converged in Tehran from Kermanshah, Yazd, Alborz, and several other provinces to protest against their poverty and abysmal living conditions.

They held placards reading, “We will not give in until our demands are met”, “38 years have passed, where is justice” and “teachers are awake and hate discrimination.”

The protesters also demanded the release of teachers detained in prison.
