“Hundreds of men are unemployed in Iran and yet some people are insisting on employing women in important executive positions like governors, etc.”
This was declared by Yousef Tabatabaii Nejad, Friday Prayer leader of Isfahan in his sermon on December 4.
Two weeks ago, he also called for prohibition of women’s employment in “shops, offices and companies”. He said, “It is not right for women to be employed while men are unemployed. Men are humiliated if they have to get money from their wives.”
