Women in Iran Allowed to Attend Games

"Female sports fans can attend games at Iran's stadiums for the first time in nearly three decades, after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unexpectedly lifted a ban last week that had prohibited women from entering stadiums. Senior clerics and conservative members of Parliament criticized the decision, saying that frequent hooliganism at sporting events made them inappropriate for women. But Mr. Ahmadinejad said women will promote better behavior." By Nazila Fathi, New York Times Link to Article (last visited 4-10-06 NVS)
