Allowing women to watch men’s sport is still a problem in Iran


This Iranian women’s problem came to worldwide attention. Now, things change a little. Some women were allowed inside a stadium last week to watch a men’s basketball match in Tehran and a senior government official has told to the media that a limited number of Iranian women will be allowed to watch Volleyball League Games in Tehran later this month. Women still won’t be allowed into soccer, swimming and wrestling matches said Molaverdi, a reformist politician and women’s rights activist. “I guess a limited number of women, mainly families of national team players, will watch the (coming) volleyball games. If it practically happens a few times, the concerns will be completely removed and it will be proven that allowing women to watch men’s sports matches is not problematic,” she told.
