Summary
This book examines the women's movement in Iran and their role in contesting gender relations since the 1979 revolution. Looking at examples from politics, law, employment, environment, media and religion to the struggle for democracy, this book demonstrates how material conditions have important social and political consequences on the lives of women in Iran and exposes the need to challenge the dominant theoretical perspectives on gender and Islam. A truly fascinating insider's look at the experiences of Iranian women as academics, political and civil society activists, this book counters the often inaccurate and misleading stereotyping of Iranian women to present a vibrant and diverse picture of these women's lives. This is a welcomed and unique addition to the vibrant and growing literature on women, Islam, development, democracy and feminisms. -- Back cover
