The Vice President of Women and Family Affairs stated that stadiums should be one of the safest areas of society, saying, “In order to attain greater vitality, we must help promote sports culture. Entering stadiums was a demand made by Iranian women that will be achieved.”

The vice president of women and family affairs expressed her gratification toward the fact that some women were demanding entry to stadiums and made efforts in this regard.

"Being able to enter stadiums was a demand made by Iranian women and with the anticipated measures and the actions taken, the problems has been solved to a great extent," said Masoumeh Ebtekar. “In the twelfth government, we have been pursuing infrastructure for two and a half years, and the Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs, Mr. Soltanifar, has made great efforts to build the necessary infrastructure.”

In this government, an act was developed for various aspects, including the infrastructure and discussion of the fans as well as the appropriate cultural space in which it was considered. “A few months ago we had some women attending Azadi Stadium, but it is the first time tickets are being sold, and this will continue.”

The Vice President for Women and Family Affairs stated that stadiums should be one of the safest areas of society, and continued to say, “We must promote sports culture in order to achieve greater vitality. Entrance to the stadium is one of many demands made by Iranian women. Our women wear hijab actively in sports and earn medals. In the recent Asian Games, one third of the teams were comprised of women and girls, and interestingly, one-third of the medalists are female. When the head of the International Olympic Committee promised to make half of the athletes on the delegation women, it showed that we have made a lot of progress in this area. This is not only an advancement for Iranian women, but it has also had a positive impact internationally by opening doors for Muslim female athletes.”

Ebtekar emphasized that women were not allowed to participate in international competitions until a few years ago because of the type of coverage they had. She stated that, “After designing appropriate women's clothing, Muslim veiled women have been able to be active in international affairs for several years. Of course, in the past few years, there has also been an increase in the number of women in parks and in public sports, and the promotion of public sports culture is of great importance. On the other hand, there are now female-only parks where women can exercise without a veil and with free cover, although there are still only very few such parks.”

Referring to the discussion of gender equity indicators, she said, “Specifically with regard to the document on the promotion of women's status, the issue of equity for women in sports arenas women has been considered."

Challenges exist in many areas, but the developments show the government's empathy for improving the status of women and families, and proves the ambition of Iranian women not to fall short of their demands," Ebtekar said.
