World has fake picture about Iranian women: MP

Tehran, March 17, IRNA – Influenced by enemy propaganda machines, the international community has a fake picture about Iranian women, Member of Parliament Laleh Eftekhari said on Monday.

She made the remarks in a press conference about his visit to New York during which she attended the 58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women.

“The international community has some misunderstandings about status of Iranian women, the Islamic culture and the women’s active presence in social services.”

“The Iranian delegation did its best to clarify the real picture of Iranian women to the world.”

The MP called her meetings with foreign delegations in New York as constructive.

She noted that “The Iranian suggestion to the UN women commission to honor family values and give orientation to women in the context of family was welcomed by the member states.”
