A number of women lawmakers expressed their concerns and views about Iran’s gender-biased laws and a number of other issues in a meeting with Parliament Speaker.
In a meeting with Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Wednesday (April 5), women lawmakers called for extra efforts to revise some of the country’s laws discriminating unfairly against women. They also urged the Iranian Parliament’s further support for them to be able to contribute to this end.
According to a Farsi report by ICANA, in this session, they also asked for the removal of the country’s unpragmatic laws and replacing them with new rules and regulations.
In this brief meeting, the female parliamentarians also requested Larijani to help them gain the trust of other MPs to have a member in the Iranian Parliament’s Board of Directors to help provide further support for the Iranian women in the society.
Addressing the meeting, Larijani said the removal of the women MPs’ worries over women condition in the society greatly depends on their own efforts to this end.
