Iran’s eighth president after the Revolution will be elected on 18 June 2021. Debates about gender and women’s rights have been among the heated topics in most electoral campaigns in the last few decades. Further, Iranian women’s rights activists have been among the most vibrant and vocal in the Middle East. Yet, Iran is consistently rated low in international rankings on gender equality, women’s participation in the workforce and some other related indexes. How has the discourse on women evolved in electoral campaigns once the last four decades? And do elections contribute to improvements women’s rights in Iran.
