Wiki User

Currently only eight women elected in the 8th Majlis (elected in March 2008), in comparison to four women in the first, second, and third Majlis; nine in the fourth Majlis; 14 in the fifth and sixth Majlis sessions; and 13 in the seventh. Those women elected to the new Majlis are all conservative. Source: http://www.ocnus.net/artman2/publish/Analyses_12/Iran_s_2008.shtml
