Abstract: 

In the Western countries since the 19th century, women's legal demands took shape in the form of feminist movements. These movements rapidly spread to the developing countries evolving in different types and forms.
Simin Daneshvar is the first Iranian writer who, in all of her works and in different ways, seeks women's the lost rights. She explicitly calls herself a feminist believes in a type of Iranian and oriental feminism which lacks the exaggerated emphases put on and found in the Western feminism. Daneshvar's feminism openly includes and reflects some manifestations of the old patriarchy, male behavioural disorders, women's oppression, as well as their significance.
This essay avoids a deconstruction of Daneshvar's works and does not intend to search for feminist elements in deeper layers of her writing.
Nonetheless, the essay attempts to retrieve the simple and transparent traces of feminism in her works and state them in a general classification.
