Iranian Minister: Women main elements of human development


Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Reza Salehi-Amiri said Saturday that women are the key components of human development in the Islamic Iran.

Addressing the first women, family and media festival underway in Tehran, Salehi-Amiri said that justice and balance will come after the establishment of the gender justice in the society.

Development will be sustainable only through making a link between the human development and improvement of the human life expectancy, the minister noted.

‘We cannot talk about reform and change in the society when ignoring women,’ he went on to say.
