Open Letter to the Presidents of Iranian Universities sign now

Open Letter to the Presidents of All Universities, Colleges and
Other Institutions of Higher Education in IranJuly 11, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

The undersigned university professors, administrators, researchers and professional Iranians express our deepest concern and strongest opposition to the proposed extreme policy by the Iranian Ministry of Higher Education to impose gender segregation at Irans institutions of higher education.

We call upon you to actively oppose the adoption and implementation of this proposal at anytime in your institution, simply because segregation is a deliberate anti-women policy that will adversely impact the quality of education in many advanced fields for Iranian women.

76 year history of higher education in our country has shown that our mature university students should be trusted to conduct themselves appropriately while attending colleges and universities, and they do not need government-imposed guardians to control their behavior.


Respectfully,
