Iran – Women: New sex-segregation measures

One of the 26 Iranian agencies tasked with cracking down on women is the “Headquarters of prohibiting vice and promoting virtue” which is taking new measures to implement gender segregation in society.

The latest of such measures are special buses for women and separate bicycling grounds.

As it can be seen in the picture, every window of the bus is dubbed with the phrase, “special for women.”

   The second picture shows a poster on a wall kiosk, reading: “Bicycle riding for women is prohibited in this place. Women are set to ride at the women’s park.” Signed: “Headquarters of prohibiting vice and promoting virtue.”
