Retired women held two simultaneous protests in Tehran and Sari (capital of Mazandaran Province in northern Iran) in the morning of September 16, 2017.

In Tehran, more than 2000 protesters gathered in front of the Vahdat Hall. Tehran retirees were joined by colleagues from the provinces of Isfahan, Central, south, north and Razavi Khorassan, Gilan, Mazandaran, Kermanshah, and Alborz.
