Iran women allowed into football stadium for first time in decades

Iranian women fans are now free to enter football stadiums after FIFA made it clear they will suspend the Islamic republic for its controversial male-only policy. Iran has stopped female spectators from football and other stadiums for almost 40 years. The new directive comes after a female fan called "Blue Girl" died after setting herself on fire fearing she would be jailed for dressing up as a boy to attend a match.
