State and Women in Islamic Republic of Iran

Khomeini Era (1979-89)

By Jyotika Teckchandani

State and Women in Islamic Republic of Iran examines the relationship between the Islamic State of Iran and women from 1979 to 1989. It was during this period that various principles and organs of the Islamic State in Iran were institutionalized under the supervision of the late Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This book explores how the issue of gender had been framed, approached, and discussed in the context of state-building in post-revolutionary Iran. It examines the impact of state policies on women and their response to these policies.
