Iran’s vice president in women and family affairs talked about the child brides given off under legal age and said that in the past two years we have received concerning statistics regarding this phenomenon. We have even witnessed the marriage of girls under the age of 10.
On the most important demands of women in Iran, Molaverdi said, based on results, several measures must be adopted. One of the issues that needs focus is housewives and the other is girls’ university graduations.
She added: currently, we are witnessing that there is a lack of balance between women’s responsibilities at home and their responsibilities in the society.
On the rate of female addicts, she also said, nearly 10% of addicts are women. 62% of the addicts are married and they inflict their damage on their families and wives and children. Currently, the age of addicted girls has reached 13. We are witnessing a shift in the use of traditional drugs to newer industrial ones.
