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.

Women continue to have an active presence on the fourth day of the nationwide uprisings in Iran on Sunday, December 31, 2017. They brazenly stood up to the security forces and confronted them.

In the protest gathering in Rasht, northern Iran, women had a remarkable presence.

In the clips received from Isfahan and Shahreza (central Iran) and Kermanshah (western Iran), women are clearly heard chanting loudly against the regime. In some scenes, they led the protesters and directed the chants.

A young woman in Tehran confronted the paramilitary Bassij and the crowd eventually drove him out of the scene by their chants of “death to the dictator.”

At Tehran’s Enghelab Square, a woman was getting arrested, but the crowd of protesters prevented security forces from taking her away.

In Zanjan (northwest of Tehran), and Orumiyeh, capital of West Azerbaijan Province, in northwestern Iran, women daringly defied and stood up to security agents.

The uprisings and protests have spread to more than 40 cities across Iran in a matter of four days.

In addition to the nationwide protests which were sparked by protests against high prices, people plundered by Caspian Credit Institute in Alvand, staged a protest in front of this branch on Sunday, December 31, 2017, demanding reimbursement of their deposits.
