Islamic Majlis says iranian women should stay in the house

The Research Center of the Majlis examined the policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran regarding the employment of women and the reverence of housekeeping in a lengthy report
According to reports, the Cultural Observations Office of this center said in its report, “What has to be encouraged and supported by the government and lawmakers is providing job opportunities for (women)who are the heads of their families(i.e. single parents). In other words, the employment of women in cases when they are the heads of families has to be encouraged but not employment for all women" .
“According to Islamic teachings, the priority of an Islamic government is the issue of housekeeping for women… therefore what has to be encouraged in an Islamic government is housekeeping”. (ISNA state-run News Agency)
