London, 15 Aug - Despite its claims of moderation, the government of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been taking increasing measures to limit women’s rights for freedom in the recent years. One of the ways the Iranian government is clamping down on women’s freedom is by limiting and dictating what they can wear. Women across Iran are now forced to wear the Chador – full black cover - in order to receive various public services, reports the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
