An Iranian woman pays a female taxi driver at the end of her trip in the capital Tehran 14 December 2006. Iran has launched a women-only taxi agency in southern Tehran for passengers who want safer rides in a city where men and women are often squeezed in together in shared cabs. Passengers in the Islamic republic travel in segregated buses, with women sitting in the back, but they share taxis with three people squeezed together on the back seat. Women can choose between female-only and mixed wagons on subway trains. AFP PHOTO/ATTA KENARE (Photo credit should read ATTA KENARE/AFP/Getty Images)

This is a Tehran bus where all the women must sit in the back portion of the bus.
Note that the division is not really half-and-half so there could be cases where the women are
all tightly packed in and there is space up front in the mens' area.

Time to Extend Israeli Law to Meah Shearim  by Naomi Ragen (16 July 2009  www.naomiragen.com)

I Am Not Sitting at the Back of the Bus
by Naomi Ragen (Jewish Chronicle, 23 February 2007) 






a

Iranian general prosecutor Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei is really ticked off about the lax enforcement of the law in his country. Are violent criminals going free left and right? Are thieves allowed to walk off with everything plus the kitchen sink? Are government officials mired in corruption and enjoying opulent lives from bribe money?

No idea. What Mohseni-Ejei is concerned about is all the tight clothes and free-flowing hair he observes in Iranian women.

Mohseni-Ejei deems it unfortunate that the Islamic dress code hasn't been enforced well enough on women's bodies in the past 15 years, and longs for violators of "public chastity" to be punished by "two months in jail or 74 lashes." President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has been in office since 2005, is considered a traditionalist who is willing to take a hard-line stance against violations of religious Sharia law, giving people like Mohseni-Ejei hope for more opportunities for violence against women in the future.
