2. In Iran there is no sex-discrimination.
Explanation: Iran has highest ratio of female to male undergraduates in the world, according to UNESCO. Female students have become prominent in traditionally male-dominated courses like applied physics and some engineering disciplines.
36 universities have announced that 77 BA and BSc courses in the coming academic year will be "single gender" and effectively exclusive to men
Under the new policy, women undergraduates will be excluded from a broad range of studies in some of the country's leading institutions, including English literature, English translation, hotel management, archaeology, nuclear physics, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering and business management.
the science and higher education minister, Kamran Daneshjoo, dismissed the controversy, saying that 90% of degrees remain open to both sexes and that single-gender courses were needed to create "balance"http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... ities.html
