Description

In the last two decades, under the Islamic Republic, laws affecting the status of Iranian women came in the form of different religious decrees that were justified by the argument that they all complied with the Quran and the shariah. This book examines the changes which have affected Iranian women's lives after the coming of Islam in the seventh century and after the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
