Larijani Slams West's Flawed View of Women

"An incorrect view has been formed about women in Europe since four to five centuries ago, which founded a kind of separation between religion and social status and replaced man's prosperity (both in the world and in the hereafter) with human-centered approach in practice," Larijani said on Monday, addressing the female parliament members and staff employees on the occasion of the 'Women's Day' in Iran.

He criticized the western view about women, and said such viewpoints are dangerous and damaging for men and women and will create serious problems for the families.

Larijani also blamed the West's incorrect viewpoints about women for social abnormalities and disorders and the creation of certain extremist feminist tendencies and movements with bizarre ideas about the female gender.

Also, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei yesterday lambasted the western countries for their instrumental use of women, and described the West's wrong view about woman as the root cause of the different problems existing in the western families.

"In the wrong equation that the West has gradually induced and inspired in the different societies, the human being is divided into two parts; Men who are considered as beneficiaries and women who are exploited and used," Ayatollah Khamenei said on Sunday, addressing a large number of Iranian women.

Based on this very wrong view, if women in the West want to prove themselves as renowned personalities in the society, they should behave in a way that men, as the beneficiaries, like, and this insult is the biggest oppression and cruelty against women, Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Referring to the figures published by the international centers, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the weakening foundations of the western families, rapid growth of women trafficking and women trade, illegitimate births and shared life outside matrimony are just a few of the evil consequences of the West's improper view of women, which is based on misuse.

Every day, women in Europe and the US fall victim to one of the most flagrant abuses of their human rights - the right to live without violence.

It might be the stranger lurking in the back alley: much more likely it is the partner, relative, friend or colleague - for most violence against women is carried out by someone they know.

Crime statistics show that one woman in four has been attacked at some time in their lives and that at least 15 per cent of all European women have experienced domestic violence in a relationship after the age of 16. With domestic violence still very much a hidden crime, the real figure is sure to be higher. Other forms of violence - such as stalking, forced marriage, forced abortions, and forced sterilization - still pass largely unrecorded.

Conviction rates for any type of violence against women are notoriously low. When police pick up a case, on average there are 35 previous incidents to take into account. And law enforcement agents do not always possess the required expertise to produce the evidence necessary to see perpetrators brought to justice. Is it any wonder that convictions are rare?

Governments throughout Europe are recognizing the challenge, but have fallen short of action. Some have now set up refuges for abused women, some have criminalized harassment. Others use restraining orders, counseling or mediation services, or expel the violent partner from the home. Practices differ from country to country, with no clear legislative model - leaving Europe's women vulnerable to a crime that should have passed into the history books years ago.

Given the mottos chanted by Europe about its pioneering role in the protection of human rights throughout the world, is this the utopia that the western society is calling everyone to?
