PARTICIPATION OF WOMEN IN IRANIAN REVOLUTION

Dr. Jyotika Teckchandani

Abstract


The most unique feature of the Iranian revolution which unfolded between 1977 and February 1979, Iran  was the active participation of the women. Like other social groups, their reasons for opposing the Shah were varied: economic deprivation, political repression and gradual identification with Islamism. Women participated in the revolution primarily as Iranians who opposed the Pahlavi government and not as women per se. Women shared the same basic complaints about the regime as men. They too opposed the repression and corruption of the Pahlavi regime and experienced the economic hardship which accompanied in increasing inflation.
