A women-only bank is a financial institution catering exclusively to women.


In 2001, Dubai Islamic Bank opened a women-only bank branch.[1]

Iran opened such a bank in Mashhad on June 7, 2010. The bank's director stated, "the aim is not sex segregation but respect for women."[2][3] The government-owned bank is Bank Melli.[4]
