Iranian dating in tehran
(#IRGC’s Quds allegedly involved in the terror attack) @VP @POTUS pic.twitter.com/Gc Bs AVy Sf T — Kaveh Taheri (@Taheri Kaveh) November 9, 2017 The Ahvazi, who are ethnically Arab, are one of a number of minorities in Iran that says it is persecuted by the country’s Persian majority.
Members of the ethnic group say they face discrimination in employment and housing and are often denied political and civil rights, according to Amnesty International.
In general terms, the trend has been towards imposing more restrictions and increasing the number of subjects that are closed to women, although the practise varies from one university to the next.
Meanwhile, women who venture outdoors must wear a headscarf, known as the “rusari”, and a long overcoat, known as the “manteau”; alternatively, they can wear a black cloak known as the “chador”.
Women can apply for a post in the “administration of education” department, but not in “public administration”.
Over the summer, the Iranian Central Bank advertised various positions intended for university graduates.
There are no restrictions on female primary or secondary education – and at university level, women now comprise the majority of students.
However, certain universities ban female students from studying specific subjects, usually those concerning engineering and technology.
In conservative rural Iran, however, drab black “chadors” are the norm.
How women are allowed to dress also depends on which political faction happens to be in power.
