Iran: a Car, designed specifically for Women

leave a comment »

Iran’s biggest car producer, Iran Khodro, has announced plans for a new car, designed specifically for women.
 
“Its features will include automatic transmission, parking and navigation aids and a jack for changing tyres without getting grease on your chador“, reports the BBC.

I see some big flaws in this concept.
 
1. The car doesn’t make women invisible.
2. The windows can be opened, and this could blow the drivers’ headscarves away.
3. The car will come in a range of (feminine) colours. — Colours?!
4. The idea dangerously suggests that women can drive at all.
 
Time for the Guardian Council to step in and to put an end to this bullshit.
