Cartoons: Iranian women in Metro by Elham Ataei Azar

Elham-Ataei-Azar-Poster-iElham Ataei Azar was born in 1984 in the city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran. She has earned her Masters in Physics. In this cartoon set, she is displaying 31 digitally created artworks about the different characters of women’s wagons in Tehran Metro.  Ataei Azar held an exhibition in early September in Tehran displaying this group of works as Men Do Not Enter.


The Tehran Metro is a rapid transit system serving Tehran, the capital of Iran. On all Tehran metro trains, the first and last carriages are reserved for women who do not wish to ride with men in the same car. However, women can still ride other cars freely. The Tehran Metro carried an average of 1.26 million passengers a day and 447 million passengers per year in 2009-2010.
