Iran: Women Barred from 77 University Courses

Young Woman Bored with Studying
­The subjects now only available for men include accounting, engineering, pure chemistry, English literature and translation, hotel management, and many others, Iranian news website Rooz Online reports. For instance, the University of Tehran will now open exclusively to men the courses related to mathematics, natural resources, and forestry.

But look at the bright side: College is mostly a waste of time and money, anyhow. They're probably doing women a favour (said tongue in cheek).

Cue Pink Floyd: She don't need no education...
