Markets In Everything: Cars for Women in Iran

A car designed specifically for women, with electronic parking aids and a jack making it easier to change a wheel, has been unveiled by Iran's state-backed manufacturer.

Iran's hardline Islamic government encourages gender separation, and last year backed a proposal to create a womens' bicycle which covered the rider's legs and upper body. A women-only taxi service, with female drivers, has been launched in the country's main cities and buses and underground trains are segregated.
