Girl students and other strata of women in Iran continue their protests
Girl students of Zeinabiyeh High School in Kamyaran went on strike in protest to the school’s demand that they pay the price of their exam sheets.
On Sunday, June 9, 2019, before the exam starts, Zeinabiyeh High School’s deputy principal lined up the girl students and told them that they have to pay 50,000 tomans each for the price of their exam sheets. But the girl students resisted and went on strike, something that forced the city’s governor and the director of the Department of Education to take back their word. It was only after this retreat that the girl students went to the class and took their exams. Kamyaran is located in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah.
