Tehran (IP) - Jamileh Alamolhoda, the wife of the President of Iran, says women will not be able to achieve their goals without the support of men.

Iran PressIran News: Speaking at the First International Congress for Women of Influence in Tehran, Alamolhoda also pointed to common values and said: "Because of differences, we should not abandon common values, on the contrary, we should emphasize them."

"We can use common values as an excuse for peaceful coexistence and integration," she said.

"If we want to talk about gender justice, we cannot argue with men. If there is no support from men, we cannot achieve our goals," she highlighted.

"Our emphasis is on unity and solidarity and we must have a better world. I hope this meeting is a model to start this movement," the president's wife noted.

"We all also cannot behave the same, but we can emphasize our common values. We should use our common methods but not cross the values. If we do not support the values, we will have a corrupt world," she added.

Women should not be spectators, she said, adding that they should be active, but it is not the same as fighting, mixing the two is very bad. "With moral virtues, we can achieve gender justice."
