State judiciary organizations in Iran regularly use this label against women who flee from home violence and the term has found its way into the country's media. In the eyes of the public whenever a girl is said to have fled her parents' home, she is invariably associated to be a prostitute, a harlot or loose. This characterization and association immediately turns a person into a criminal, in the eyes of the public.
