AN Iranian model who faces jail in her home country for posing for semi-nude photos has found herself homeless on the streets of Paris. The model feared being lashed for breaking Iran's strict Islamic law after a photographer she posed handed partially nude photos of her in to the police.

Women in Iran discusses the history, contribution, aspects, and roles of women in Iran. Historically the traditional view of the role of a woman was that a woman would be confined to the home where she would manage a household and raise children. During the Pahlavi era there was a positive change towards the segregation of women: ban of the veil, right to vote, right to education, equal salaries for men and women, and the right to hold public office. Women were active participants in the Islamic Revolution. Women are not equal under Iran's constitution, adopted after the Islamic Revolution in which mandates legal code adhering to Sharia law. Women under law are treated as half a man; men inherit twice what a woman would, and compensation for the death of a woman is half of a man's. Iranian law still favors men, but women are allowed to drive, hold public office, and attend university. Not wearing a veil in public can be punished by law with up to 10 years of prison  , when in public all hair and skin except the face and hand must be covered. Archaeological excavations at Shahr-e Sukhteh "Burnt City," a prehistoric settlement in the Sistan-Baluchistan province of southeastern Iran, have revealed that the women of the 4th—3rd millennium BCE community maintained a high level of socio-economic status.
