Gender Discrimination at Universities

Colleges moving towards reducing women's enrollment

بی بی سی: از این پس، برای ورود به دانشگاههای ایران، بیشتر از اینکه ملاک دانش و علم مطرح باشد، زن یا مرد بودن مهم است. در دفترچه های انتخاب رشته امسال، در مقابل رشته های مختلف در بسیاری از دانشگاهها، دو ستون ناآشنا قرار گرفته، ستونی که تعداد پذیرش زنان و مردان را تعیین می کند. پس از تایید و تکذیب ها درباره تفکیک جنسیتی دانشگاه های ایران برای سال تحصیلی جدید، حالا روشن شده که دولت، قصد دارد به مردان برای ورود به دانشگاه شانس بیشتری بدهد، درحالیکه در سالهای گذشته، بیشترین شمار دانشجویان را زنان تشکیل می دادند. مسعود آذر گزارش می‌دهد.

Do I get a free flight by Air France with all the honors to Iran? Are you real? Keep denying reality and that will get you real far.

JC may have regretted propping up Khomeini after he got back stabbed by the hostages. That does not change the fact that he did help put Khomieni in power. Do you also deny the statements of Andrew Young; positions of Ball and Brzezinski? 

This is my last repose to you because you are obviously not listening. Please live in your world and we live in reality. Sure Khomeini got no support at all from West. He just happened to end up in France. Just like MEK happens to be there floating in cash.


Khomeini flew with Air

Khomeini flew with Air France, "He must be working for the west", hahah!!


It was actually Jimmy Carter who first threatened to remove the IRI, it couldn't though, because it had huge support.

  • Dear Maryam: thank you for your kind words.
  • Zamin: Why should AN even be involved in university policy? Is he the president of the university or the president of Iran?

Zamin: West most definitely helped install Khomeini. For proof here are some fact that are all in open records. You may find them with minimal work

  • Jimmy Carter's adviser Ball told him to retract support from Shah and put it behind Khomeini this is a recorded fact. 
  • Jimmy Carter's UN ambassador Andrew Young called Khomeini as "some kind of saint" here is the link for it: //
  • The same link also indicates the attitude of Zbigniew Brzezinski towards Khomeini.
  • In addition it was France which gave the Imam a place to base his propaganda machine.
  • Who flew Khomeini into Iran: Air France.
  • Who gave Khomeini a platform to voice his propaganda: BBC.

You may try to deny the facts but they are there. Any intelligent person is able to read and find for themselves. You keep on your laughter while our nation weeps. Maybe you find the misery of Iran funny; I do not.

You would know if you actually lived in Iran, not Los Angeles.

And where do you live? Definitely not Iran.


You guys do know there were

by Zamin on

You guys do know there were a lot of complaints, right? Ahmadinejad wanted to actually remove the segregation, but there were a lot of complaints, protests. You would know if you actually lived in Iran, not Los Angeles.


As for the West installing Khomeinei, That's laughable.Where is your proof? The Shahi's?

This is why the west wants this alien culture for Iran.  It fits with their over all plan of making the middle east like Africa.

We have to stop blaming the West for our stupidity. Yes I know they had a hand in installing Khomeini. But that was 33 years ago. What benefit does West get from keeping Iran back? Iran has 70-80 million people. West has to contend with India and China which together have over 2.5 billion people. That is over 30 times the population of Iran. For every job that Iran could take from West India and China take 30 times as many. They are giving the West the run. So Iran is a drop in the bucket.

The damn thing is our own fault. So please stop this business about "West" planning our future. Yes I do know that Britain and USA helped overthrow the Shah. But we could have accepted Bakhtiyar. It was our own *** fault! 


This is not gender segregation

by KingReza on

From what I've heard, the universities in Iran are flooded with women. To balance the number of female students, the state is trying to make it easier for male students to get in. Whether this is a good idea or not, that's another debate, but I wouldn't call it gender segregation. Lots of western universities provide extra opportunities for groups that are under-represented.


Gender segregation is a tell tale sign of other truths.

Be Happy we still have 2 Genders in Iran.

They wanted to exterminate women, which they treat as evil, but discovered they wouldn't get very far, so they did everything they could think of to crush women and torture any man that dared protest.  Its a sick, sick system of ignorance this islam.

This is why the west wants this alien culture for Iran.  It fits with their over all plan of making the middle east like Africa.

Freedom, Justic, Democracy.  What a joke that so many Iranians still believe this is the wish of the west as opposed to the reality that they use these concepts to first sell/fool their own people and then come over to dupe the rest of us, which is easy to do once you've duped your own intellectuals.  And in practice the Empire of the United States only wishes for tyranny to thrive, hence betrayal of the Shah.

Is Iran the 1st country in the world to segregate universitie by gender? Did Koran promote gender apartheid?

IRI acts more like Talibans!
