This House Would expel Iran from international football games if they do not allow women to attend football games
Since 1981, Iranian women have been banned from attending male football games with some exceptions being made for select matches of Iran's national team. The ban is widely controversial and disobeying the law might result in very grave consequences. A few weeks ago, 29-year-old women Sahar Khodayri set herself on fire in front of an Iranian court after learning she could face prison time after she has tried to see a football game in march. The death of Sahar - who is now known as ""Blue Girl"" - led to many discussions and international pressure on Iran to lift the ban.
