Women in Iran

Iran has barred female spectators from football and other stadiums for around 40 years.
Women in Tehran have embraced the obstacle-beating discipline of parkour. They say in the religiously-conservative society of Iran, parkour teaches them to overcome both physical and mental hurdles.
Female soccer fans packed a stadium in Tehran on Wednesday, after the de facto ban on their attendance was lifted.
Iranian women have been banned from attending football matches since 1979.
