Women return to football in Iran – La Provincia

The women attended a soccer match in Tehran for the first time since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, thanks to an exemption that only applies to the men's national team matches, which is now trying to qualify for the Qatar World Cup. Between 3,500 and 4,000 women had acquired admission to the match between Iran and Cambodia (14-0). Access has not been free. The female audience has been in bleachers where there were only police and female medical staff. In addition, women are still prevented from accrediting themselves as photographers, even though the Ministry of Sports promised to eliminate inequalities for the press. Iran's ultra-conservative regime applies strict social norms whereby women remain in the background at public events. Some tried to circumvent these prohibitions disguised in stadiums, an activism that resulted in tragedy with the death of a woman who set herself on fire when she was convicted of trying to break the laws.
