Iran Focus: Tehran, Jun. 12 – A protest that began with a gathering of dozens of women in downtown Tehran this afternoon drew thousands of anti-government protesters and streamrolled into one of the largest demonstrations against Iran’s clerical rulers in recent months. The protest began in front of Tehran University as a small group of women began chanting “freedom, freedom” and calling for a referendum on religious rule.

New York Times: Hundreds of women staged an unauthorized demonstration in Tehran today, protesting sex discrimination under Iran's Islamic leadership just days before the June 17 presidential elections. The protest was the first public display of dissent by women since the 1979 revolution, when the new regime enforced obligatory veiling. "We are women, we are the children of this land, but we have no rights," they chanted.

Iran Focus: Tehran, Jun. 08 - A member of Iran’s powerful Guardian Council said that women were rejected from standing as candidates in the upcoming June 17 presidential elections because they were “incompetent to take up presidential responsibilities”. “Women lack the intellectual capacity and understanding to stand as candidates in the [presidential"> elections, and for this reason they were disapproved en mass”, the non-cleric GC member said.
