Western propaganda massively promotes the idea that the Islamic perspective hinders women’s growth and progress. This is clearly a lie and a completely biased statement. For at no point in our country’s history – neither in the past nor in the era of westoxification – did we have so many [of the present-day] female writers, female translators, and female artists in the true sense of the word. All of these have been achieved. Thanks to the Islamic Republic and the viewpoint of Islam regarding women, which is based upon respect.
