"Iran will remain a thrid world country unless more effort is put into women education and equal rights for women."
Posted by Afshin M. Click to email on May-03-04, 02:49 PM (GMT)
The more I ve been travelling around the world, Africa Europe China Mongolia U.S. the more it is obvious to me that the single most effective factor for sustainable socio spiritual and economical progress is women's education and their full participation in the countries decison making institutions.
Iran will remain a thrid world country unless as it did happend in the past for other socio spiritual matters , Iran emerges as the opinion leader of all Muslim countries and promotes women education and equal rights. All other discussions about politics and politicians are a waste of time and will not change anything deeply in the country. Enough bloodshed, enough youg people without future

Are Iranians mature enough to understand that?
I suggest to open a forum about women education and women rights.

I'm not an expert but I think that the position of women in Iran has changed a lot in recent years.

Just read this BBC article:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3476193.stm


....Visitors to Iran these days can't fail to notice a change in the atmosphere of the place.

Twenty-five years on from the Islamic revolution, young girls on the streets of Tehran have abandoned their black chadors in favour of tight-fitting coats and designer sunglasses.

Few government agents seem inclined to enforce the Islamic Republic's moral code any more......

thats about to change,the religeous police ar raiding clothing stores arresting women in the streets for their pushing the limits of the dress code.But on another note prostitution is at an alltime high and dont forget the legalized temporary marrage services that the government profits from,sounds like government sposored prostitution.there is I believe a small minority of non-muslims in Iran,why do these women have to follow an islamic dress code?

nope,just conserned individual that believes in freedoms and deplores the middle-ages treatment of woman in middle-eastern countries.I see that not many people suport equal rights for woman by the lack of responce.Look at the latest headlines on IPS,you thinks this foolishness is right?

We (the Iranians) already know bout this but there isn't much we can do, and its not a real fun subject to discuss( beacuse we can't do anything bout it).

I think we can, it all starts at home.
If we can teach our children to be more fair to our wonem foalk then it is a start.
This lack of equlity is universal, some are better off then others but it has not reached the 50:50 stage any were.
We as iranians, must start this at our own homes.

you are right ,children are the future,and they only know what they are tought.But some of the stuff I have read cant be true.
for example 9 year old girls can be "given" for marrage to older men ,that is just wrong.This must be stuff that happens in tribal areas and not main stream in urban areas.Also,
Indonesia is a majority muslim/islamic country and it doesnt need a strict female dress code,maybe Iran should follow their lead.

ps.I hope people dont mind the questions,feel free to answer if you like.

I agree whit you fosi Iran should follow Indonesias fotsteps, or maybe Lebanon.
But you should know that the standard respons for this is that they are sunnis and iranians are shias..etc.
Still indonesia is completley developed, i recall i few years ago when linking parks was going to have a cnsert there, they were not alowed to have their shorts. But atleast theyre music isn't illegal in Indonesia. Yes you're right that kind of marriage isn't normal within townspeople.
