Iranian regime carries out discriminatory policies in line with gender segregation in universities

The initial results of the 2011 nationwide [university acceptance] exams were announced while widespread gender discriminatory policies in accepting girls were carried out…

According to reports, while the figures showed that 68 percent of those who were allowed to choose a major were girls and 32 percent were boys, the amount allocated to boys in many universities in the country is notably higher.

In addition to this, in close to 40 universities in the country… in many of the courses only male or female volunteers have been accepted which is in line with gender segregation of the students and more limitations subjected on volunteers who want to choose their courses.
