Zarathustra and Women's Rights


In Zarathustra's view, men and women are equal. They are both expected to lead a good life in search of the best wisdom. Although the feminist movement and women's right is very recent even in most of Western's countries, Zarathustra advocated for women's right almost 5000 years ago in a very patriarchal and men dominated societies. In Ancient Persia, women were partners with men and active in all walks of life. As per rules of Zoroastrianism women could reach the highest religious position such as Zoot that required extensive religious education. Girls cannot be forced into a marriage without their consent. According to Zoroastrian's rules:

1 - women were able to handle their wealth by​ themselves.

2 - Women could be the guardians of their children.

3 - Women could legally represent their husbands and make decisions on their own during their husbands illness / unavailability.

4 - Women were able to prosecute their husbands for their unjust actions.

5 - Men were not allowed to marry their daughters without the wife's knowledge or consent.

6 - Women could witness at the court.

7 - Women were able to be a judge or a lawyer.

8 - Women were able to be subject to a will or arrange their own will. 

"O, Pouro-Chista (Zarathustra's daughter)) of Spitama's House and of Haichatspa's Family; O,

the youngest offspring of Zoroaster; Mazda Ahura has bestowed upon you

as husband and Lord, the person who has deep attachment to Vohuman

and Truth. Therefore, consult with your inner self and wisdom, and act

through Armaiti, i.e. pure love and intuition" The Gathas of Zarathustra, Yasna 53-3​
