Past studies have revealed that a culturalist approach may be more appropriate in assessing the roles and status attained by women across Arab-Islamic countries since religious and cultural factors there are perceived to be more explanatory than political and economic variables. However, the Middle East and north Africa presents itself with much theoretical potential because of how these regions enable the study of the relationship between patriarchy and the various aspects of development. Through a comparative evaluation of the state policies, development strategies, and the effects of women employment in countries of the Middle East and north Africa — particularly Iran, Tunisia, and Turkey — this chapter attempts to look into how the traditional patriarchal system of gender relations has affected development, and the roles that women assume in such endeavours.

Keywords:   Arab-Islamic countries, Iran, Turkey, Tunisia, patriarchal system, gender relations, roles of women, development, culturalist approach
