The Latest Musings of Ayatollah Khamenei, Feminist
In marking International Women's Day, Iran's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has accused the West of objectifying women.
In April 2014, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, dismissed Western criticism of gender roles as an “intellectual mistake.”
“A woman at home is the source of peace, the source of peace for the man, and the source of peace for the children,” he said in a speech.
For this year’s International Women’s Day, Khamenei took his campaign to Twitter, accusing the West of objectifying women.
“[The] basis of western culture is that women should be presented in society as a product, an object that men can benefit from,” he posted in an infographic that included a cartoon woman covered in a barcode.
