The FIRST cabinet in Iran’s history that submitted a bill to the Majles for female franchise was Dr. Mossadegh’s cabinet. In 1952, Dr. Mossadegh's cabinet submitted a layeheh [cabinet bill] to the Majles granting Iranian women the right to vote. It was strongly opposed by the Speaker of Majles, Ayatollah Kashani. Mossadegh’s bill for women’s vote was one of the reasons for the difference between Ayatollah Kashani and Dr. Mossadegh. From late 1952, Ayatollah Kashani got closer to the Shah.
On several occasions, other Majles deputies had proposed a bill to grant women the right to vote. But until 1952, no CABINET has submitted [layeheh] cabinet bill on this issue.
Mr. Mirfetros has made the following FALSE assertion.
او که تحصيلات عاليه حقوق را درکشورهای سوئيس و فرانسه تمام کرده بود نسبت به سرنوشت زنان ايران بی توجه بود و از دادن حق رأی به زنان ( حتی زنان شهری ) خودداری کرد
Professor Ervand Abrahamian, who is one of the most prominent historians of Iran, writes:
“Kashani's opposition to Mosaddeq came into the open by mid-1953 once the latter issued a referendum to dissolve Parliament, drafted an electoral bill enfranchising women, tended to favor state enterprises over the bazaar, refused to ban alcohol, and declined amnesty to assassins from the Fedayan-e Islam.”
