Iran Women Attend First Football Match in Ages by Saocv(m): Mon Oct 2019 11:32am
Iranian women have attended a World Cup qualifier in Tehran after being freely allowed to enter a stadium for a men's match for the first time in decades.



Women have effectively been banned from stadiums when men are playing since just after the 1979 Islamic revolution.



The change followed the death of a fan who had set herself alight after being arrested for trying to attend a match.



But Amnesty International described the move on Thursday as a "cynical publicity stunt".



The human rights organisation said there were only a "token number" of tickets for female fans as it called for all restrictions on female attendance to be lifted.



More than 3,500 women bought tickets to Thursday's World Cup qualifier against Cambodia, where they were granted access to a special women's-only section of the Azadi Stadium. The stadium has a capacity of about 78,000.
