The number of Muslims throughout the world is estimated between 0/7-1/2 billion, and there are about 7 million Muslims only in USA. In other word, about 21 percent of world’s population is Muslims. Although Christianity has the most followers, it includes only 33 percent of population; and in some recent decades, their number has decreased and the number of Muslims has increased. If this course continues, till the middle of 21 century Islam will be probably reckoned the general religion throughout the world. To develop Islam, various countries and cultures may interpret Islam and its rules in various ways, and especially their view toward women may change, and this affair makes women’s image more complicated.

Women of before Islam had been under pressure and ……, as they could multiplicity of husbands at the same time and have been misbehaved. On the other hand, women had only the role of procreation, and with advent of Islam, woman’s husband and family undertook to look after her. After Islam, women along with men, could attend in societies and participate in social activities. History shows that women in advent of Islam could attend in society and say their prayer in the latest lines of prayer and behind men.
A look at history of Islamic civilization indicates that, in that, woman was looked with respect and honor. Islam cleared that man and woman are branches of a root. These two are the ramifications of nature, units of human, and society needs them for its own being formed. Islam declared women’s rights perfectly clear and overt, and it emphasized on observation of these rights. Islam declares implicitly that nature of man and woman, their creation is the same, and they two were created from one essence; unique existence. What is inferred from Koran is that there is not any difference between man and woman, in human reality.
History of Islam is the indication of attendance of prudent women who, in trying circumstances, have had important role in advancing Islam’s aims (brilliant life of Zahra (peace be upon her) and her dearest girl Zeinab, and other notable women are evidence this fact. And history of advent of Islam is full of women’s participation in different political and social arenas.) In our Islamic society, Iran too, women have had a special place. To keep the dignity and rank of a Muslim woman, women have had ever an effective, helpful and active role in many scientific and social arenas. Especially, after victory of magnificent Islamic revolution, and with Imam Khomeini’s thoughts about women, made the basic transformations in their social, scientific and cultural participation in society. In the way of their scientific and social progression, women stepped into the new way, and played an effective role in cultural development of society. Especially, in society of university and scientific arenas, this role was very outstanding, and we can claim that the most important arena in Iranian women’s progress after revolution is university. Scientists show that from academic year 1377 to 1378, the number of women’s acceptance exceeded 50 percent from total acceptance, and this quantity have increased to 60 percent in last two years. This indicates that university stage have very high capability for active participation of women in social arenas. Therefore, also ratio of the university-manageresses clears the brilliant changes. The increase of the number of women in scientific corps, the increase of the number of scientific books written and translated by them, doing the authentic scientific investigations, placing in the management posts of educational groups, managing and directing of college and even university, have been from scientific and managing progresses after Islamic revolution. Now 3634 of university scientific corps members are women, and it indicates Iranian women’s high capabilities, and existence of extensive backgrounds for women’s participation in Iran.
