Iran rejects UN women's right deal
"Tehran — A hardline Iranian religious body has refused to sign on to an international agreement on women's rights because it contradicts Islamic law, a spokesman for said Wednesday.
The unelected Guardian Council, which must approve all legislation before it becomes law, rejected a parliamentary bill on Tuesday that proposed signing the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
"The bill was rejected because several articles of this convention are contrary to the holy Shariah law and the constitution," Guardian Council spokesman Ebrahim Azizi told Iranian TV on Wednesday...."

From the firs time I heard about this convention I knew that’s impossible in Iran & something like a miracle is needed! That even sounds funny; Islam & no different between men & women!!!! Supporting women & their rights!!! Wow, that might even be a great sin!!!!
This is clear that as long as we are forced to stand Islamic republic in our country & during the reign of Mullahs; we must forget about a better situation for women.
