How Many?

I believe that we have three separated women's groups in Iran : Modern , Traditional women and Group in the middle who are moving from the traditional to modern group.
The traditional group is the most important. However , we don't have a right resource to know how many percent of the Iranian women belong to this group.
The activists need this information.

Joojeh jaan,

I don't think one can make such a clean-cut categorization of the Iranian women. Also, the evolutionary logic of "tradition to modernity" is very problematic, i beieve. There is a lot written on the false dichotomy of tradition vs. modernity. I highly recommend Afsaneh Najmabadi's work which addresses the construction of this dichotomy (modern woman vs. traditional woman) in the history of modern Iran. Modernity and tradition are not binary opposites.

I agree with Sima, but I think you've started a nice track; good try!
ولی از من به تو نصیحت خر این سیما رو بچسب و تا می تونی ازش منبع و مقاله تخلیه کن! بی انصاف نه تنها نصف کتابهای عالم رو جویده و خدای اطلاعاته در این زمینه تازه با تجربه کاری هم که داره خوب میدونه داره چیکار می کنه! هرجا پیداش کردی مخش رو کار بگیر که حیفه از دستت در بره؛)دیگه خود دانی!؟
