Abstract

This article presents Islamic women’s framing processes in their campaigns to address women’s political underrepresentation in Iran and Turkey. It argues that while Turkish women justify their claims through international human rights discourses, Iranian women frame their demands in religious terms to find resonance with political elites. Women’s strategic framing processes demonstrate the extent to which women’s demands for equal representation are shaped by the political and discursive opportunity structures that arise out of their secular or theocratic contexts.
