100% gender discrimination in Tehran marathon

Outrage is growing regarding the gender discrimination in the marathon run in Tehran. Contrary to Iranian obligations and prior commitments, more than 200 female runners in the first Tehran marathon run were banned from running in the streets with the men, and were segregated to refined area. Some of the female participants accused Iran of deceiving them, and stated that they would never have signed up if they knew this would be the situation.
