Iran to Omit ‘Divorced’ from Women’s Identity Documents

An Iranian MP says the government is to present a bill to the Parliament whose ratification will lead to the removal of divorce details from women’s identity documents.

Salman Khodadadi, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s Social Commission, says plans are underway to remove divorce details from the birth certificates of divorced ladies.

“The government’s plan to submit a bill suggesting the word ‘divorce’ be removed from divorced women’s identity certificates is a right and influential decision,” he noted, according to a Farsi report by Mehr. ifpnews.com
