Here is some background information:

After an Iranian man forbade his athlete wife from travelling abroad for a sports competition, men in Iran are campaigning on Facebook for women to be freed from legal restrictions that give their husbands the power to make many of their decisions for them. (Read the rest on France 24.)

Some people still believe that there are different human races, ( see the recent Nadine Morano speech) and some people still believe that women are lower than men.
Stupidity and obscurantism have no borders.
But fortunately, in France like in Iran, many people react. All is not lost!

In 2015, in the occidental countries, the women have got quite the same rights as the men.

That was not true in the first half part of the twenties century (and before).

It’s difficult to imagine that other civilisation have not yet evolued like us… despite the global sharing of TV and internet.

Erratum: I think it’s better to write “Nadine Morano’s speech”

I don’t know about the campaign, but “I” usually ask “my wife” if I can travel by myself and the answer is usually NO :) Just kidding to make a point !!!

As long as the relationships are based on “Who’s number 1 in that relationship and who’s number 2” and “Who wears the PANTS” , there will be problems of this kind and other kinds that never ends.

And everybody knows that, in spite of the appearances, in a couple, it’s genarally the wife who calls the tune…

But, in most cases of domestic violence, the victim is the woman.

Always there are such problems between husbands and wives all around the world. But, when a country’s law supports one side, serious problems arise.

Yes, Iranian society is changing but in a slow rate. I think this change should accelerate.
