Zan-e Rooz (meaning Woman Today in English) was a women's weekly magazine published in Tehran.[1] The magazine was first published in 1964.[2] Before Islamic revolution Kayhan (Publishing company) was the editorial and publisher.[3] After the Iranian Revolution, as women's political activity alongside men increased, publications focusing on women's issues sprang up to answer the increased demand. Due to this, Zan-e Rooz shifted from being a Western-style gossip sheet to a publication dedicated to exploring the rights of women within the Islamic framework.[3]
