Iranian women are forced to pay the heavy price of the economic crisis and unemployment resulting from the Iranian regime’s unpopular policies and its export of terrorism. The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Labor stressed that in the last 5 years, 521 000 women have been laid off from work and the country is faced with the unemployment of educated women.
The latest statistics of this ministry showed that from 2009 to 2013, the number of unemployed women in Iran has increased by 14.2%. In 2009, some 3.7 million women were employed in the country. This is while in 2013, this number reached 3.1 million. This means that on an annual average some 100 000 women have lost their jobs.
