Iran: Women teachers stage protest in Golestan

Some 30 women, pre-school teachers, staged a gathering outside the office of the governor of Golestan Province in the city of Golestan, northern Iran, to protest the uncertainty surrounding their employment status.

The protest took place in the morning of September 4, 2017. Women protesters wanted their employment status determined and settled permanently.

One of the protesters said that despite the fact that according to the law, the employment status of all pre-school teachers must be determined, there are still many provinces in Iran where the employment status of pre-school teachers have not been determined.
