Iran to allow women inside sporting events

Iran partially lifts ban on women in sports stadiums

Women have been banned from attending men’s sports since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

The announcement came from Abdolhamid Ahmad, Iran’s deputy sports minister with its Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, and was made to the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency.

From the Times:

A Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports official told the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency that women and their families would be allowed to attend most athletic events, except for those of “masculine” sports, like wrestling or swimming, during which male athletes wear uniforms or suits that cover little of their bodies.

Women will most likely be assigned to special sections in the stadiums, while mixed seating will be available for families.

Ahmad said the new policy will come into effect during this Iranian calendar year.

Last week, an appeals court dismissed charges against Ghoncheh Ghavami, an Iranian-British activist who was arrested last June after trying to attend a men’s volleyball match in Iran. She was convicted and sentenced to a year in jail, but was released on bail after five months.
