At least three women committed suicide over the past two days in Iran.
Two young women threw themselves off the Chamran Bridge in Isfahan, central Iran.
“They were 17 and 18 years old,” said a regime’s official. “One has lost consciousness and is unlikely to survive and the other has broken all her limbs,” he added. (The state-run Jam-e-jam website – October 21, 2017)
Another woman in Paveh lost her life at hospital after setting herself on fire a few days ago.
Mrs. Fanous Azizi, 55, set herself on fire due to family problems and died on Friday night, October 20, 2017.
Zahra Hazrati, a professor of sociology, admitted in a conference in June 2015 that Iran ranks first in the Middle East in women’s suicide.
A plethora of social, economic and educational restrictions which lead to women’s poverty and unemployment along with daily suppression of women to enforce the compulsory veil, as well as the absence of any form of government support for women, make women feel desperate and commit suicide.
