The officials of Alamiyeh Tabatabaie University in Tehran have issued strict guidelines for women entering the university. They have banned colourful veils, make up and jewelry, and have placed guards at the front gate to report anyone transgressing the new regulations to the Islamic regime’s authorities.
In protest, 8-900 women held a sit in outside the university. Plackards at the sit-in said: ‘No to dress controls’, ‘no to reaction’, and ‘you cannot make us wear black’.
