Ira­nian women banned from sta­dium

The Week - Junior - - Around The World -

Fe­male Ira­nian politi­cians have com­plained about a ban pre­vent­ing Ira­nian women from en­ter­ing a sta­dium to watch a World Cup-qual­i­fy­ing match be­tween Syria and Iran. Women in Iran are al­lowed to watch foot­ball played by other women, but not by men, which is why they were banned. Vis­it­ing Syr­ian women were al­lowed to en­ter and cheer on their team. Fe­male MPs are call­ing for change.
