A quarter of Iranian women beset by depression


London, July 6 (IranMania) - According to the latest research carried out in Iran the number of women suffering from physiological disorders is twice that of men.

The ‘Iran’ daily reported that the results of a survey carried out by the Psychology Institute show that 14.9% of Iranian men
suffer from some kind of mental disorder while the figure stands at 25.9% among Iranian women.

The head of the Institute, Dr. Jafar Bolhari considered the lack of a coordinated relief network in the country as the reason
behind this crisis saying: “Many of the serious psychological diseases seen today among Iranian women were at first no more
than minor problems. Yet as these problems were left unnoticed, they gradually grew into complicated crises.”

According to Dr. Bolhari the most serious psychological problem threatening Iranian women is depression. He noted that in
today’s society when an Iranian woman counters a problem she does not know where to seek refuge and that’s why she is
vulnerable toward psychological pressures.

Roundup of today’s Iran current affairs news


London, July 6 (IranMania) - To prevent illegal excavations, permanent guard posts are to be established in five of Iran’s historical sites. The establishment of the bases requires a 700 million toman ($840,000) budget.

- One fourth of the programs aired by Iran’s state-run Broadcasting (IRIB) is made up of commercial advertisements. This is
while there is no official regulation concerning the timing and the quality of TV ads in Iran.

- A number of Iranian MPs reported the formation of a new Parliamentary Commission called the Commission of Journalists and
Press.

- Iran’s Minister of Interior and government spokesman rejected any news on ratification of a bill on certain dressing codes. Despite the denial of the news, it seems that Tehran’s Police is going to unilaterally draw up regulations in this regard to counter what it terms as “violation of Islamic moral rules” in society.

- The most recent statistics indicate that the rate of employment among Iranian women is among the lowest in the world.
