Iranian women attend World Cup 2022 qualifier to end 40-year exile

Women were able to watch their staff in Tehran for the first time in 40 years to be lifted.
Iran thrashed Cambodia 14-0 in a World Cup qualifier which was witnessed inside the Azadi Stadium by 4,000 female audiences.
Iranian police were moved to allow a quota of tickets to be marketed to women following the shocking death of Sahar Khodayari, that became known as theBlue Girl because of her love of the European staff Esteghlal.
After being summoned to face charges in relation to her effort to put in a stadium khodayari put fire to herself.
A major milestone was signified by the sight of girls draped in their flag in the stands in the push from the male-only coverage of Iran in sporting events, following a 1981 ban which followed the nations Islamic Revolution.

Only four sections of this scene were allocated to supporters, who had been kept separate from men and under the protection of police officers.
Philip Luther, Amnesty Internationals Middle East and North Africa Director, said before the match:Irans decision to permit a token number of women into the arena is a cynical marketing stunt from the authorities meant to whitewash their picture following the international outcry over Sahar Khodayaris tragic passing.

The Australian government should lift all restrictions on girls attending football games, such as national league games, across the country.
The worldwide community, for example world soccers governing body FIFA, should also make sure that women are allowed to attend all matches freely and with no discrimination.
FIFA has a duty to respect human rights throughout its operations, along with also the ability under its exemptions to carry definitive and urgent action to address a situation that it has allowed to continue for much too long
Women have often cheered on their staff abroad for many decades , despite being prohibited from doing.
Zahra Pashaei, a 29-year-old nurse that has only known football matches from tv, stated:Were so pleased that now we got the opportunity to go to the stadium. Its an extraordinary feeling.
At least for me personally, 22 or 23 decades of longing and regret lies behind this.
