Insider news & Analysis in Iran

On Monday, December 5, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, wrote an article about Minoo Aslani and the state of 'gender equality' in Iran. 

The Iranian regime’s commitment to the United Nations for the realization of 'gender equality' is unconstitutional, according to Minoo Aslani, who is in charge of women’s branch of ‘Basij’ paramilitary force. At a press conference, she called the efforts to create 'gender equality' in Iran, "contrary to the interests of women". State run ‘Mehr’ news agency reported on Saturday, December 3, that she continued, "This current mentality of 'gender equality', [wants] to distort the identity of Iranian ladies through misusing women's issues.”

Minoo Aslani weirdly criticized’ “Color The World Orange” campaign by The United Nations, on the occasion of the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women, saying that this campaign calls on women “not to express their affection and love for their family.”

"Why should they commit themselves to UN, to achieve 'gender equality' in the next 15 years?” Aslani slammed the regime's officials, adding, "it is heard that a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ has been signed on jobs to be divided equally between men and women. This is against women’s dignity.”

She complained that some people are against the marriage of 17-years-old girls and consider it an example of violence against women.  She asked, “Why? The marriage of girls at a young age is an honor and the judiciary should promote such "thought" in the society.”

She called the questionnaires which were distributed to evaluate performances of different official bodies on 'gender equality' is "unconstitutional" and "The judiciary must act.”

Minoo Aslani protested women working in a mixed environment.  she called it an example of "violence" against women and an issue which disrupts women's security.
