Female German referee. Bundesliga broadcast canceled in Iran

SCARY. We know what the Ayatollahs think about women’s place in society. 

Deutsche Welle 2.17.2019

Iranian state TV did not broadcast a Bundesliga soccer match because of the presence of a woman as referee, media say. The Islamic country censors the showing of women in “revealing” clothes such as football shorts.

Bibiana Steinhaus, 39, is the first woman to have officiated at men’s football matches at a professional level in Germany. She refereed her first Bundesliga match in September 2017.

The broadcast was reportedly canceled because the Iran’s strict Islamic regulations do not allow the showing of images of women wearing clothes that reveal large amounts of skin, such as football shorts.
