The following are excerpts from an Iranian TV report on women in the West. The report was in Arabic on Al-Alam TV on December 26, 2004:
Voice over: The young woman of the West is a consumer of fashion and drugs and is a profitable target for those who control the markets and the companies. A close-knit family, which gives its daughters sufficient love and affection, is the exception in a society that considers the cost of having a child compared with having a dog or any other pet. If the cost of the pet tips the balance, they will settle for it, instead of having a child.
Thus, we sense the reality of life for the young woman of the West, where society has become a bunch of instruments of production, whose individuals are judged by profit alone.
