Resumen

El objetivo de este artículo es destacar algunos de los factores que influyen en la situación actual de las mujeres en Irán. Se sostiene que su posición en la sociedad puede ser entendida a partir de la influencia de factores locales y globales. Los locales son la ley de la familia, las características del sistema político iraní y las condiciones educativas y laborales. Respecto a los factores globales, se hace énfasis en las agendas de los organismos internacionales, las sanciones económicas impuestas por el gobierno estadounidense y los movimientos feministas transnacionales.
