Tehran, Iran, Sep. 11 – Women have been finding it evermore difficult to find employment in Iran and their social rights have continuously deteriorated since the 1979 revolution that swept to power fundamentalist Islamic clerics, according to a recent economic survey in the country.

The study has indicated that over the past four decades, despite the fact that women constitute half of the population in Iran, the men-women employment ratio reached 90-10 respectively.

Strikingly, while women have made up more than 60 percent of university entrants in the past five years, the recent survey showed that women represent only 12 percent of the country’s economically active population.
