Sharing Beliefs: what Sexuality Means to Muslim Iranian Women Living in a Western Society

Effat Merghati Khoei Ph.D.

The sexual understanding by Iranian women will likely be shaped by their religious teachings. This study explores the suggestion that meanings generated through the lived experience of Iranian women’s sexuality may challenge certain Islamic notions of sexuality.  51 ethnographically informed encounters with Iranian women in Sydney were held, as well as 10 semi-structured encounters with Shi’ite clergy from Iran
