Book Description

Oct 1996 Women's Studies at York Series
Women presented the first effective challenge to the Islamic regime and the clerical authority in post-revolutionary Iran. Women's activism in support of their legal rights and personal freedom, however, did not develop into a strong movement against the rising fundamentalism. The Iranian socialists did not support women's autonomous organizations. The convergence of the Left's populism with Islamic populism, and the influence of the Iranian/Shiite political culture that promotes male authority and female submission, could not reconcile with women's claims to individual rights, choice, and personal freedom and their struggle for autonomy and self-determination in private or public life.

Format:Paperback
Haideh Moghissi's Populism and Feminism in Iran is truly impressive. A well-written consideration of the role of left-wing women in the Iranian revolution, it convincingly argues that the revolution would have taken a different course had the leftist opposition to the Shah not shared the Islamic opposition's deeply rooted sexism. At the same time it raises a series of fascinating questions about revolution, autonomy, orientalism and the meaning of feminism in the third world.
