Tehran province’s punishment patrols began their rounds Monday morning, October 19, by inspecting some women’s beauty parlors in north Tehran.
The patrols were accompanied by representatives from the ministries of health and trade unions as well as an advisor from the Women and Family Affairs organization in the Organization of State Punishments.
The measure, ostensibly to ensure women’s health (!), is yet another repressive measure adopted by the regime to tighten up control and escalate repression in society.
