Hello Katjaontour 😊

Yes, u can certainly do it as a woman alone. At least in Iran u can. They may think it a bit odd that a women is travelling alone but that is as bad as it is likely to get. I have never been to Turkey so cant comment on that part of the journey. Ask them in Tehran to put u in an all women train cabin. Believe it or not even in Iran they do not automatically do that.

I dont know if there is or isnt a train that goes directly from Tehran all the way to Istanbul.

This would make a good thread topic. Many dont know much about how we as foreigners can support womens rights in Iran. We could discuss how we as foreigners can effectively support the feminist movements in countries like Iran. Insisting on doing things like being a lone woman in close proximity to men is futile and dangerous in some countries.

I completely understand where you are coming from. I can't fathom how hard it must be for women in Tehran, I was just caught off guard when you told her to ask for an all female cabin. Most natives, atleast here are very conservative when it comes to moral issues but they are usually lineant to foreigners. She would never get harassed/hurt in Tehran for not abiding to the Iran Sharia laws that bind and oppress women, after all shes just a traveler....now if she was moving to Tehran on permanent residency... that would be an issue.

Foreigners have in fact been dealt the full blow in Iran for violating the laws there. It would be rather naive of any foreigner to assume that being a foreigner makes one immune. Reply to this
