​Forbidden streets

Hundreds of people took part in Teheran’s first international marathon on Friday, 7 April. It was an event that will live on in history but not for the Iranian women who were forbidden to take part in the race down the city streets. The women enrolled had to run a shorter, separate race, away from the public and inside a closed stadium. Indeed the only way granted to women to take part in the marathon on the streets was to stand on the roadsides as spectators and applaud.
