“Private and public lives of Iranian women, a generational perspective”
Lecture with Masserat Amirebrahimi, Ph.D
Independent Social Science Researcher.
This paper will discuss transformations which occurred in the public and private lives of middle-class, urban Iranian women from the mid 20th century until present day. My focus will be on different generations of women’s and their increasing significance as social and economic actors since the Revolution in 1979; and how different generations of urban middle class women managed / learned / invented different strategies to change their situation despite multiple limitations and segregation imposed by the traditional society or the state and religious authorities.
