Abstract:   (2064 Views)
The present article aims to study the gender oppression of female students in the context of the existing relations at Iranian universities. University community is the only mixed community, gender-wise, in Iranian administrative-governmental settings, with a very different cultural diversity and circulation. Therefore, scores of situations, in which gender and sexual encounters are possible, arise amid everyday university relationships. Although the issue of male professors’ sexual and gender encounters with female students has been publicized in Iran, it has been mostly ignored in research studies. The present article focuses on an aspect of sexual‌ and gender encounter that has been overlooked in different studies. To this end, ten universities were selected and in-depth interviews were conducted with 146 female students. The findings of the study show that when the Islamic cultural principle of gender relationship boundaries is regarded firmly or violated by male professors, the triad of ‘violence’, ‘discrimination’ and ‘exploitation’ will emerge, resulting in gender oppression toward female students.
