Abstract: 

This study aimed to examine the political culture, the Shiite women contribution in politics and its effect on Iranian women’s political culture. The research was carried out using a descriptive-analytical approach. The underlying assumption was that, although the political culture components in Iran such as authoritarian culture has been responsible for the decline of women participation in politics, due to the influence of the Iranian Shiite women’s political culture, the women political participation in certain periods of history has increased. For example, during the Islamic revolution under the supervision of Imam Khomeini (ra) the political participation of women has reached its peak. During the revolution, the role and contribution of women in politics for the first time became equal to that of men. The revolution was a manifestation of the political participation of women in Iran.
