Perception of ideal and reality among female university students in Iran

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since 2003, the women’s enrollment rate at higher education institutes has been exceeding that of men and in 2008 the disparity in enrollment rate grew even wider every year. This growing gender gap sparked off serious debates and eventually led to the government introducing gender quota in national entrance examinations. Because of the rapid increase in the enrollment rate, university education became nothing more than the privilege for a few in today’s Iran. However, it is often depicted that female students regard themselves as the chosen ones and are proud of their student status. However, they do not hesitate to voice their frustrations claiming that as compared to the male students, they are not given sufficient choices and opportunities to develop themselves, especially after graduation. Although such a stereotype image of university students may not be very different from the situation of the majority of female students in contemporary Iran, the realities must have more layers and differences with respect to the students’ major, family background, and individual as well as family’s expectations. In order to better understand how students perceive their ideal situation and the reality and how they try to negotiating between them, a qualitative research will be conducted based on the open-end interviews with students in different universities, undertaking several majors and belonging to different family backgrounds. This research will contribute to the diversity present in women’s expectations, their perception of reality, and the way they negotiate between them.
