عنوان مقاله [English]
At the eve of 20th century, a group of Iranian modernist women established a journal under the name “Alam-e Nesvân” (World of Women). This was part of a great modernist movement by Iranian women whose presence and attempts concentrated mainly in Tehran and other great cities. Among different issues of this journal, feminine hygiene and medcine and the modernist approach of the journal to these issue call for especial attention. Focusing on this journal, we aims to shed light on some less-studied aspects of Iranian women’s social and cultural life in late 19th and early 20th century. As the results show, this journal represent an attempt by a group of Iranian modernist women who aimed to conduce a change in the feminine discourse of Iranian culture in early 20th century from the traditionalist-masculine tone to a modernist-feminie one.
