“Women and girls in our society, especially university graduates, suffer doubly from problems in economic and employment arena,” asserted an Iranian cultural activist.
Mohammad Rasoul Mehnatfar talked to an ILNA reporter in Kermanshah (western Iran) about problems of women. He noted, “Compared to men, women enjoy far less social and political privileges in the cities of Gilan Gharb, Sarpol Zahab and Qasr-e Shirin and are deprived of many of their inalienable rights.”
Mehnatfar added, “Women’s capabilities and powers are completely forgotten in economic activities.”
