Iran opens first women-only bank: Report


Iran's first women-only bank branch opened on Monday, allowing women to manage their finances without dealing with unrelated men.

Bank Melli -- one of Iran's biggest retail banks -- opened the women-only branch in the holy city of Mashhad as a service to women, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported.

In recent years women-only taxis, with female drivers, have become available in some Iranian cities, as well as public gardens where men are not allowed.
