The Women's Rights Research Seminar (WRRS) at Oxford was founded in 2009 with the initial aim of directing interdisciplinary scholarly attention to the condition of women in Iran.  Since then, the research group has broadened its purview to the condition and rights of women in the Middle East, covering topics such as the politics of fertility, women in ethnic minorities, and the treatment of women in states governed and influenced by Islamic law and jurisprudence.  WRRS welcomes seminar and paper proposals from any discipline.  Enquiries: Binesh Hass (
