Women only park in TehranA concert has been cancelled in the city of Uromiyah, north west Iran, because men and women were to attend on the same day.

The regime's ministry of culture told organizers they should have sold the tickets for women on the first day of the event and for the men on the second day.

The latest example of repressive gender segregation comes after Tehran municipality announced a plan last month to separate male and female employees in the workplace.

Tehran's Mayor Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf is now spreading to other agencies within the Iranian regime, according to the reports by state-run media reports.

Qalibaf has defended his plan against the fury of women's groups, telling state-run media: "We should not allow a lady to be in contact or socialize during office hours with strangers for days and months, and spend more time with strangers than being with her close family members and husband and children. What’s happened to our dignity?"

On July 23, Hassan Rouhani’s justice minister, Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi described this plan as being 'in conformity with the regime’s values'.
