When females tried to enter the hall to see Iran – USA match, they were stopped by the organizers, according to some media. As most of them were journalists, that information was soon revealed and published which caused numerous protests on social networks.
As some media wrote, Islamic radicals branded female fans as “sluts” and “prostitutes” and allegedly distributed the vulgar posters. That is the main reason why the decision of Iranian Volleyball Federation had to be dismissed.
Islamic radicals didn’t hide displeasure with the decision of volleyball authorities from the start. They protested in the streets against breaking tradition that prohibited women to participate in sports events.
Even Iranian government showed willingness and assured the FIVB (the World Volleyball Federation) it will make concessions on this matter, but the situation is different in the reality.
