#BIGPICTURE: Iranian women watch World Cup for first time in 40 years

00:50

For the first time in nearly 40 years, women in Iran were allowed to watch a World Cup game in public, at an Iranian Stadium in Tehran. Normally, it's illegal there for women to even enter a stadium, but this doesn't signal drastic change -- the government says this is just a one time exception.
