Iran Bans Women From 77 Fields of University Study

Women in Iran have been banned from university courses in 77 different fields, after administration said they have a “manly nature” not suitable for women.  According to the US State Department, 36 universities have instituted the bans.  They won’t allow women to pursue courses such as engineering, education, English language, computer science and literature.  The Iranian Science Minister said the ban was put in place to protect morality.  The US is calling on Iran to reverse the policy and uphold women’s rights.  Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi has reportedly written a letter to the UN protesting the change in policy.

Geezus.  If I lived in Iran I would be livid.

So hey, let’s bomb Iran and kill a bunch of oppressed people.
