As soon as the Islamic Republic was firmly established in Iran, the government began to rewrite the laws relating to women's behaviour. Attempts were made to force women out of the job market, and the veil and other Islamic tenets were enforced in the home, office and streets. Yet women have constantly challenged the attempt to socialize them into fundamentalist norms and have reasserted themselves in both the economy and the arts. This detailed study sets out to transcend the stereotypes and misinformation which often permeate discussions of the condition of Iranian women. The contributors cover topics such as: education; the labour market; temporary marriage; the commoditization of female sexuality; the representation of women in literature and film; parliamentary debates on women's issues; and the strategies used by women to maintain a modicum of control over their own affairs in a male-defined and male-dominated society.
