The ministry of sports and youth is working to elevate the status of women in sports federations and international arenas. Abdolmanaf Hashemi, financial deputy at the ministry said their policies are guided by “gender equality and fairness.” He added that in the previous year, special funds were allocated to improve conditions for women and said similar measures are planned for the current year (started March 21). The measures include building more sports facilities for women to be used for recreational and professional purposes.
