Have you applied to examine the trial records of those Baha'i women recently sentenced to ankle bracelets?
Here we go....
Following on from my previous post, while searching for news of demonstrations across Iran over a woman killed in detention over a morality law, I found myself to be reading this article, so I've provided a link and now show a few paragraphs for scrutiny.
Minorities are always under observation in Iran. Many minorities can have difficulties if they want to hold meetings of more than a handful of people.
But working women have a very poor deal indeed. Secondary schooling is not an option for them, they are expected to carry out manual work in the fields, marry young, and to rise out of their situations is extremely difficult. A really tragic situation which I would encourage anybody to investigate.
Bahai women are mostly middle class citizens, they don't get anywhere near such treatment, I think.
And all I've heard is Bahai telling us it's all about....... Bahai! Yes, that fits.
Early marriages, exclusion from school, domestic violence, lack of knowledge of their legal and social rights, lack of access to sanitation, hygiene, and water are among dozens of challenges the rural women of Iran face. These problems prevent the progress of rural women in Iran and subdue their creativity.
The culture of male-domination promoted by the clerical regime is reinforced in villages by a patriarchal management culture. Both of which forbid women’s social participation.
The rural social structure dictates that a “good” woman must tolerate all the hardships. She must work hard and serve everyone in the family. She must protect the family despite her own physical and psychological decline.
This culture coupled with poverty and hundreds of other problems imposed on the nation by a tyrannical regime, have created an inconceivable situation for the rural women of Iran and the Iranian village girls.
