Drawing on the complexities and nuances in women's education in relation to the aftermath of the 1979 Iranian Revolution,
this edited collection examines implications of religious-based policies on gender relations as well as the unanticipated
outcomes of increasing participation of women in education. With a focus on the impact of the Islamic Republic's Islamicization
endeavor on Iranian society, specifically gender relations and education, this volume offers insight into the paradox of increasing
educational opportunities despite discriminatory laws and restrictions that have been imposed on women.
