Description - Veiled Employment by Roksana Bahramitash

This collection explores a wide range of issues surrounding women's employment in Iran, tracing it's evolution during the past five decades. Contributors address the influence of globlalization, the presence of an informal sector, and the accelerating trend in the size and diversity of the female workforce. Together these essays offer a nuanced and complex picture of Iranian women in the workplace, one that emphasizes the ways in which women have challenged Islamism to become agents of social transformation rather than victims of religious fundamentalism.
