Given the ever-increasing significance and role of modern social movements in world arena and the essential impact of Islamic Revolution’s ideology and approaches in determining Iran’s world policies, this paper tries to find answers to the following questions: What is the proportionality of feminism, as one of the most important modern social movements in the world, with the presence of Islamic Revolution in world arena? Are they totally in opposition or there are some grounds for interaction?
To that end, with respect to the theoretical fundamentals of French socialist Alain Touraine, this paper has applied a qualitative method for a comparative review of Islamic Revolution and feminist movements in view of the components causing such movements. Based on findings of this paper, it can be claimed that the Islamic Revolution has identity, objectives and rivals far beyond those of feminist movements. However, the Islamic Revolution with its Islamic feminism or the movement of Muslim women offers grounds for interaction with feminist movements. Therefore, given the identity, objectives and certain rivals, Muslim feminists can initiate an interaction and seek self-realization through using the joint grounds between Islamic Revolution and feminist movements (reviving the rights of women and rejecting dominance) as a chance for expressing their identity, effectuating formation of resistance against the rival, and pursuing their rights in world arena.
