Abstract: 

The present study deals with the developments of archeology in the second half of the twentieth century. Influenced by women freedom movements and the developments in other branches of humanities and social sciences, women studies entered the realm of archeological studies in this period. The current study examines the historical development of women studies approaches in archeology and its importance in the development of theoretical framework of archeology and providing new analytical capabilities. Updating the theoretical frameworks of archeology, a paradigm shift towards the role of women in the past societies, and the promotion of the status of female researchers in the field of archeology have been a few achievements of women studies. It should be mentioned here that the concept of ‘gender’ as used in the scope of social sciences is a little different from that used in archeology. In archeology, the term “archeology of gender” is often applied to a new approach the principles of which are the study and analysis of the role of men and women (mostly women) in the process of the development of past societies. In this article, we look at ‘gender’ from the archeological point of view.
