Media outlets in Iran have in the past few days reported about the “first” and “only” female municipality worker in Iran to claim women are present in any job in Iran.
However, the reports helped uncover the dire and tragic conditions of working women in Iran who have to accept any job at any age to support their families without sufficient wages or any insurance.
The poor woman called Soghra Khani Shahr Abadi is 61 and has been involved in this job for nine years to provide for her family of eight. She does not have any insurance. (State-run Mehr news agency – December 20, 2015)
