Players of the Iranian women’s national soccer team react after withdrawing from their qualifying match against Jordan for the 2012 London Olympic Games in Amman June 3. The Iranian team were banned from the match on Friday in the second round of qualifiers in protest against guidelines on their veil. The FIFA woman’s association requires that any covering used does not cover the neck and ears. In Iran all women are required to cover their hair in public to conform to the Islamic dress code.

It’s important to remember that women’s rights in Iran are trampled on in every category and they’re treated as second class citizens, at best. They are required to wear the veil; it is their personal choice.
The only countries that mandate the hijab today are Iran and Saudi Arabia.
This breaks my heart so much. Look at these women, their being denied the right to do what they love so much. ):
This picture kills me. For the love of the sport, you shouldn’t be able to do this to someone. You can see the pain there, keeping them from what they’ve been working for, dreaming of, what they’ve put they’re blood, sweat and tears into for life.
As far as I know, my hijab has never reached and strangled anyone. Keeping them from doing what they love isn’t keeping anyone safer. It’s being a bigot and asking to be not taken seriously.
Fuck you, FIFA.
Is this enraging. Like what is this fuckery?
This is really upsetting >:
CAN YA MAKE A FUCKIN EXCEPTION FIFA?? jfc.
I mean, it sucks. But rules are rules. Making an exception for them would infringe on the rights of other players. If they want to be treated as equals, they have to follow the rules like everyone else.
this hurts me to see this honestly they should be allowed to play smh cmon fifa what happen to “say no to racism” this coming from a 100% devoted christian.
