Vol. 8 No. 2 (2020): March
Purpose of the study: The purpose of this study is a critical discourse analysis of position and role of women in the contemporary Iranian feminist, based upon Norman Fairclough theory as well as writings, books, speech and stories of feminists, such as Noushin Ahmadi Khorasani, at three levels: 1) description 2) interpretation and 3) explanation.
Methodology: Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis is used as a research method. “Discourse analysis” methodology seeks to study production structure and its general relationship using apparent effects of speech and writing, in critical discourse analysis, examined texts at three levels of description, interpretation, and explanation. The researcher accurately analyzed the works of Ahmadi Khorasani at three levels of description, interpretation, and explanation.
Main Findings: findings indicate that, at the description level, highly frequent words referring to “women” and “family” have limited the women’s rights. At the interpretation level, writings and stories portray a very pathetic image of a woman; at the explanation level, sexual view, dominant patriarchal discourse, and power ruling women can be seen in the stories.
Applications of this study: Application of this study can be used for the analysis of other writing in all over writers, special writers who work about women's rights and Women's Education. Also, finding this research help another researcher in doing critically studies for improving his/her research. Finally using this finding of research can help the reader to find hidden Ideology in writing.
Novelty/Originality of this study: one of the main new aspects of this research is to paying attention to view’s Noshin Ahmadi Korasani. She is one of the women who try to change the law about human rights in Iran. There is no research about her writings & stories, especially from the critical aspect, so this research and finding is new research about women's rights.
