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.

Dozens of women participating in the uprisings and protests across Iran on Saturday, December 30, 2017, were beaten and arrested.

The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has received video clips containing the voice of a young woman being arrested in Isfahan.
