[quote=zachus;298290]But your definition of rights and liberties is a longshot from an Iranian's definition of rights and liberties. My friend was born in Qatar and spent 12 years there - the women do not feel oppressed because not having what we deem rights and liberties is all they know. In many cases they're unaware of the freedom women have outside their country's borders. Persian women are taught the "secrets" of sex when they're married, no earlier. That's weird to us as Canadians where it's normal for girls to lose their virginity as early as 14, 15, 16. Unethical to not educate your women about sex? Maybe in Canada. It's just accepted as a way of life in Iran.
Sorry, but denying somebody employment because they are single has nothing to do with the secrets of sex and trying to draw any parallel is simply ludicrous. Also if you read the whole article the single men are also being told to get married or get fired. Also this is new not something already in place otherwise they wouldn't have been employed in the first place.
