Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday three women will join his Cabinet, the first female ministers in the country since the 1970s. Speaking on state television, Ahmadinejad named Marzieh Vahid Dastgerdi as minister of health and Fatemeh Ajorlu as minister of welfare and social security. The president did not name the third minister Sunday but said he will have at least one more woman on his Cabinet. Dastgerdi, 50, is currently a gynecologist, and Ajorlu, 43, is a lawmaker.
