Abstract: 
Although constituting half the society, women have always been neglected through history in the works and thoughts of thinkers and have been rarely represented in writing. The present article studies female practical wisdom in Khamseh under four titles: ethical dos, ethical don' ts, household management, and civil politics. In this invaluable collection, Nezami sometimes has a positive approach and mentions women' s virtues, such as chastity, generosity, humbleness, contentment, modesty, piety, forgivingness, faithfulness, hospitality, independence, education; he sometimes has a negative approach by referring to negative features like jealousy, trickery, wine drinking, revengefulness, and immorality. Neami mentions some household management roles that women play: educating children, being a good wife, honesty, truthfulness, and some political roles they play: justice, generosity towards people, joining the king and the nation, using art in politics, avoiding cruelty, and consultation.
