Women appointees[edit]

Despite the pressure coming from his supporters and women's rights activists to appoint female ministers,[10][11] Rouhani did not name any woman as minister, however he appointed three women in his second administration, Masoumeh Ebtekar and Laya Joneydi as vice presidents and Shahindokht Molaverdi as his aide for citizenship rights.[8]
