The United States says “nothing suggests” Iran is improving the treatment of women following reports Tehran was scrapping its notorious morality police after months-long protests.

“We have seen the reports but will not comment on ambiguous or vague claims by Iranian officials,” a State Department spokesperson says. “Sadly, nothing we have seen suggests Iran’s leadership is improving its treatment of women and girls or ceasing the violence it inflicts on peaceful protesters.”
