The 19th International Annual Conference of the
Iranian Women's Studies Foundation

The essential Needs of The Iranian Woman

July 4-6, 2008
Wheeler Auditorium
University of California, Berkeley

Despite a myriad of social and legal setbacks in the
last thirty years where Iranian women lost many of the
rights they had attained in the past 100 years, they
have continuously strived to improve their social and
political status. Consequently they have established
their presence in different spheres of life,
particularly that of civil society. This conference
will examine the socio-political needs of the Iranian
woman in regards to ethnicity, gender, religion, class
background, sexuality, and sexual orientation.

he Iranian Women's Studies Foundation (IWSF) is a
non-profit organization. It has no affiliation to any
political or religious group or organization, and aims
to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on issues
related to Iranian women, to disseminate information
on Iranian women's achievements, and to establish a
network of communication among communities of Iranian
women the world over.
