Despite Protests Iran Begins Massive Crackdown On Women

On Friday 700 Iranian women protested at Tehran Polytechnic University against new regulations enabling police as of 21 April to arrest women who do not abide by the Islamic dress code. The women organized a rally on campus and signed a letter to the dean calling the new rules “an offence to the dignity of women” and accusing him of “wanting to extend to academia the sexual apartheid imposed by the government on Iranian society.”

But, it didn’t stop the religious police from hitting the streets this weekend.
