London, 5 October - A prominent Iranian women’s group has condemned the decision to hold the Women's World Chess Championship in Iran.

The Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has urged the World Chess Federation (FIDE) to change the decision because of Iran’s despicable treatment of women. They state that by awarding the championship to Iran, the FIDE is supporting the oppression of Iranian women.

London, 15 Aug - Despite its claims of moderation, the government of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been taking increasing measures to limit women’s rights for freedom in the recent years. One of the ways the Iranian government is clamping down on women’s freedom is by limiting and dictating what they can wear. Women across Iran are now forced to wear the Chador – full black cover - in order to receive various public services, reports the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
