Iran's footballing plight-A tale of misogyny:

\r\nIran despite being an Asian footballing powerhouse has for long been infamous for its medieval laws when it comes to the fairer sex.\r\n\r\nEven in the footballing fraternity women have long been held from being able to attend matches in Iran.
The prevalent practice had expectedly come under heavy scrutiny during the 2018 FIFA WC, with protests prevalent in major areas of the country to allow women to be a part of the beautiful game.\r\n\r\nFollowing the protests, FIFA itself had stepped in with FIFA president Giani Infantino himself being assured by the Iranian government that “women will be allowed to enter football stadiums.\"\r\n\r\nhttps://twitter.com/IranNW/status/1311300376755347458?s=20\r\n\r\nHowever, it now seems that the entire promise made by the Iranian government was more of a farce than an actual attempt to remedy its ways.\r\n\r\nAlso read: Bayern Munich pursuing Atletico midfielder Thomas Lemar\r\n\r\nIn a behavior highlighting the height of misogyny, the DFL Supercup which took place yesterday had it's broadcast canceled by the Iranian state-run television at the last minute.\r\n\r\nOn further inquiry, it became clear that the reason for the cancellation was Bibiana Steinhaus, who was overseeing the fixture.\r\n\r\nThis is not the first time that Iran has canceled the broadcast of a Bundesliga fixture because of Steinhaus.\r\n\r\nhttps://twitter.com/ODDSbible/status/1097106438655303681?s=20\r\n\r\nThe fixture became even more important to the footballing fraternity because it was Steinhaus's final match as a referee, who is now taking a hiatus from the sport to focus on her personal life.\r\n\r\nSteinhaus who has been at the forefront of breaking barriers in football, has been officiating in the Bundesliga for the past 2 years and has grown to be among the most respected of referees around the world. This was also the first time a woman was officiating the German super cup and in her last match, as in her entire career, she once again broke the barriers.\r\n\r\nhttps://twitter.com/newsinvideos/status/906672489203421184?s=20\r\n\r\n\"At the end of the day, it's the performance that counts,\" Steinhaus told DW in 2017. \"And the person who has the best performance should be allowed to be on the pitch, regardless of gender, hair color, or religion. That's all that counts.\"\r\n
\r\n\r\n\r\nThis perfectly sums up her attitude about the game and also comes as a fitting reply to Iranian Television's decision to not broadcast the fixture.\r\n\r\nhttps://youtu.be/ZJq1AVNu6HU\r\n\r\nIf you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out
