Iranian administration to offer bills to resolve women’s problems

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 21

By Temkin Jafarov, Umid Niayesh - Trend:

Iranian Vice-President for Women and Family Affairs Shahindokht Molaverdi said that the Iranian administration has allocated more job opportunities for men rather than women.

The dominant culture in Iran 's society see men as the family breadwinner so the administration has taken measures towards resolving the unemployment problem of men rather than women, despite the fact that the number of women graduates in Iran is higher in comparison, Molaverdi told Trend news agency Oct. 21.

It is also related to the Iranian economic problems compounded by international sanctions, she added.

The vice-president went on to note that the administration is trying to improve the country's economic situation and overcome stagnation that will resolve the unemployment problem, and men as well as women would benefit it.

"We need to make plans to prepare jobs for women, while the country has invested in their education," Molaverdi said. "The investments should not be wasted and a mechanism should be established for using the educated women's skills."

She underlined that the administration will prepare new bills to protect women's rights and resolve their problem.

The Statistical Center of Iran puts the number of Iran 's so-called absolute unemployed at 2.5 million. The center previously announced that the unemployment rate stands at 10.7 percent.

On Oct. 10, head of Iran 's Labor and Social Security Institute Mohammad Reza Sepehri said that currently 9.5 million people are unemployed in the country, however the minister of Cooperative, Labor and Welfare Ali Rabiei put the figure at 6 million.

While responding to a question about the measures taken towards the recent acid attacks against the women in Isfahan city, Molaverdi said that the administration is waiting for the final report of the police.

According to the recent reports only one person was involved in the attacks, she said. Molaverdi said that the Police and judiciary should seriously investigate the issue to prevent rumors.

In recent weeks, some claims on social networks said that the reason for these acid attacks were the fault of the women, who violated the Islamic dress code in the city.

It should be noted that in the last weeks at least 4 women became victims of acid attacks by unknown motorcyclists. The latest incident happened on the night of Oct. 15. Unknown persons on motorcycles threw acid at her while she was in her car.

Molaverdi called the attacks obvious violence against the women.

The recent attacks are completely different from the former acid attacks that have happened in Iran in recent years.Those were attributed to personal motives, and seem to have had a specific target, she added.

The vice-president noted that no significant acts have been taken so far against the acid attacks in total and the administration has handled the issue case by case.
