End Ban on Female Fans in Iran; Stadiums for All

Today, over 130 distinguished signatories are calling for “Stadiums for All” and an end to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s 34-year ban on female fans in the run-up to the June 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Signatories to the open letter include Alda Facio, Founder and First Director of the Women’s Caucus for Gender Justice at the International Criminal Court; Amel Grami, Professor at the Tunisian University of Manouba; Amina Sboui, Tunisian Activist; Åsa Dahlström Heuser, President of the Secular Humanist League of Brazil; Fatou Sow, International Director of Women Living Under Muslim Laws; Fereydoon Farahi, Singer and Musician; Harold Walter Kroto, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry; Hassan Zerehi, Journalist and Editor-in-Chief of Shahrvand Newspaper; Jean-Claude Pecker, Astronomer and Former Director of the Nice Observatory; Lawrence Krauss, Theoretical Physicist and Cosmologist; Marieme Helie Lucas, Founder of Secularism is a Women’s Issue; Maryam Namazie, Spokesperson of One Law for All and Fitnah; Mina Ahadi, Spokesperson of the International Committee against Stoning and Execution; Nazanin Afshin-Jam, Human Rights Activist; Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan; Richard Dawkins, Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science; Shadi Sadr, Human Rights Lawyer; Shahyar Ghanbari, Iranian Lyricist, Songwriter and Singer of Persian Pop Music; Siba Shakib, Author and Steven Weinberg, Theoretical Physicist and Nobel Laureate in Physic. The ban on women in stadiums is yet another example of gender segregation and discrimination against women. For many years now, women in Iran have opposed the ban, including by issuing petitions, organising meetings and protests at stadiums and even risking arrest by dressing as men in order to circumvent the prohibition. This open letter aims to gather further support for women and men in Iran opposing gender segregation and for stadiums for all. The full list of signatories to the open letter can be found below. To support Stadiums for All, please sign the petition here and Tweet: #IRWomenStadium. The ban on female fans in Iran must end. And it must end now.

در ایران تحت حاکمیت حکومت اسلامی، زنان از ورود به ورزشگاهها براى تماشاى مسابقات محرومند. اين يک نمونه بارز از تبعيض جنسيتى و تحقير و توهين به زنان است. مردم ایران این آپارتاید جنسی را نمی پذیرند. بویژه سالها است زنان در ايران عليه اين محدوديت و تبعيض آشکار٬ مبارزه ميکنند. هزاران امضا عليه ممنوعيت ورود زنان به ورزشگاه در ايران جمع شده و ميتينگهای اعتراضی متعددی در مقابل استاديوم هاي ورزشي در ایران برای ورود زنان به ورزشگاهها از سوی زنان برپا شده است.

ما با اعلام این کارزاراز مبارزات برحق زنان در ایران دفاع کرده و خواهان لغو فوری ممنوعیت ورود زنان به ورزشگاهها هستیم.

در آستانه مسابقات جام جهانى فوتبال ٢٠١۴ برزيل که در ماه ژوئن برگزار مى شود٬ ما خواهان “استادیوم برای همه” هستيم.

به سی و چهار سال ممنوعیت ورود زنان به استادیوم های ورزشی در جمهورى اسلامى ایران باید خاتمه داد!

ما از همگان دعوت میکنیم این طومار اعتراضی را امضا کنند.

ممنوعيت ورود زنان به ورزشگاهها در ايران بايد ملغى شود! استادیوم‌برای همه!

مردم ايران عاشق فوتبالند. رژيم اسلامى مانع ورود زنان به استوديوم ها ميشود. تعدادى از زنان علاقمند به فوتبال٬ در مواردى با پوشيدن لباس مردانه وارد استوديوم ها ميشوند. اين زنان اگر لو بروند٬ مورد آزار و اذيت ماموران حکومتى قرار گرفته و يا حتي دستگير و جريمه ميشوند. بدليل اعتراضات گسترده در ايران عليه اين موضوع٬ رييس فيفا (فدراسیون جهانی فوتبال) مساله محرومیت زنان از استادیوم‌ها را با مقامات رژیم مطرح کرد.

در آستانه مسابقات جام جهاني فوتبال در برزيل که در ماه ژوئن ۲۰۱۴ است٬ ما خواهان استادیوم برای همه هستيم. به سى و چهار سال ممنوعیت رژیم اسلامی به ورود زنان به استادیوم های ورزشی باید خاتمه داد!

End Ban on Female Fans Stadiums for All Iranians are football crazy but women are banned from entering football stadiums. Some circumvent the rules by dressing as men to gain entry. Those found out are harassed, fined and detained. As a result of widespread protests, the FIFA President raised the issue of women at football matches. In the run-up to the June 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, we call for football stadiums for all. The Islamic regime of Iran’s 34-year ban on female fans must end. * * * * * Endet das Verbot für weibliche Fans Stadien für alle Iraner sind fußballverrückt, Frauen aber sind in Fußballstadien nicht zugelassen. Einige umgehen dieses Verbot, indem sie sich als Männer verkleiden, um in die Stadien zu kommen. Die die erwischt werden, werden schikaniert, verurteilt und inhaftiert. Aufgrund der weitreichenden Proteste hat der FIFA-Präsident sich jetzt der Sache von Frauen bei Fußballspielen angenommen. Im Vorfeld der FIFA-Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft im Juni 2014 in Brasilien fordern wir Fußballstadien für alle. Das Verbot des islamischen Regimes im Iran für weibliche Fans muss ein Ende haben. * * * * * Arrêt de l’interdiction de stade pour les supportrices ! Les stades pour tous et toutes ! Les Iraniens et les Iraniennes sont fous de football, mais les femmes sont interdites d’entrer dans les stades de foot. Certaines détournent la loi en s’habillant en hommes pour pouvoir entrer. Celles qui se font prendre sont harcelées, condamnées à une amende et emprisonnées. Suite à de fortes manifestations, le président de la FIFA a abordé la question des femmes lors des matchs de foot. Dans le contexte de la coupe du monde de la FIFA de juin 2014, nous appelons à l’ouverture des stades de foot pour tous et toutes. Il faut mettre fin à 34 ans d’interdiction par le régime islamique d’Iran pour les supportrices! Signatories 1. Afsaneh Vahdat, Central Committee Member of Children First Now 2.
