Abstract: 

Women and men have different needs in the process of development. Achieving development is not possible, without involving the women in development. Women should be involved in the development not only to improve their condition but also to increase production. The purpose of this study was to compare the economic, social and cultural conditions of rural women in "less developed", "semi-developed" and "developed" villages in Fars province. A case study methodology was used. Data were collected using a questionnaire with open and closed- ended question. Economic aspects (family income, assets and women's autonomy), social aspects (family size, literacy of family, amount of leisure time, access to education and credits) and cultural aspects. (women's involving decision making, women prestige and rights in family) were examined. The results indicated that development led to increase family income, women literacy, access to education and credits, and women abuse, and decrease in women employment, participation in family decision making and prestige. In all, development had a positive effect on women satisfaction with their gender type. It is recommended that in addition to technical dimensions, social and economic conditions should be also considered in any development aimed at achieving gender-oriented development.
