Women in Iran:
Adding to my last post
, the largest Iranian automobile manufacturing company (automobile manufacturing is one of the major industries in Iran, possibly the largest), which is a governmental company, has now provided new uniforms to its female employees. Please note that this is not all female workers
, but all female employees
: the female employees usually work in offices, etc; the workers are mostly male. As far as I can tell, similiar uniforms are not issued to all male employees.
The exact text is something like this: "the company is asking the colleague ladies to wear the uniform that has been provided to almost all of them. Using the uniforms is obligatory, and the presence of the hounorable ladies in the company will be only possible if [they are] wearing the uniform."
