Those were the years that began with the emergence of the first journal of women, Danesh; until the dissolution of the last feminist association by the government of Pahlavi I, to lead the movement for the rights of women in a covert to escape censorship and critical level.

Iranian women have been at the center of social and political changes and challenges before, during and after the Islamic revolution in 1979.

This study approaches the works of some of the important women filmmakers of Iranian cinema like Milani, Derakhshande, Banietemad and some others who after the revolution, decided to make films more related to women’s rights creating the new “New Iranian Cinema” as a paradigm of a new national identity.
