Conference: Achievements & Challenges of Iranian Women: A Cross-generational Perspective

Iranian Women's Studies Foundation (IWSF) CONFERENCE

June 29 – July 1, 2007 ~ University of Maryland, College Park, USA


Iranian women have pursued women's rights on many fronts for several decades. The role of the Iranian women's movement has been significant in furthering not only women's issues, but human rights in general. Given that Iran has one of the youngest populations in the world, it is crucial to bridge the experiences and accomplishments of the Iranian women's movement across generations.

The selected topic provides opportunities for different generations of Iranian women to exchange ideas concerning the women's movement and to share their aspirations for the future. We are pleased to present the following topics:

  • A comparative analysis of generational achievements and participation in the Iranian women's movement
  • The social, cultural, political, and economic issues of Iranian women (in Iran and abroad)
  • The effects of inter-generational relationships on the development of gender issues
  • The prevalence of and possible solutions to the generational gap
  • Middle East and other international women's movements

IWSF strives to create an atmosphere that encourages a constructive dialogue. We hope this discourse contributes to a more effective Iranian women's movement.
