The phenomenon of globalization has variably influenced all societies within the last two decades. Iran is no exception to such a rule. The gradual penetration of globalization process has nearly touched on all aspects of the social life. This paper attempts to investigate the relationship between globalization and women's social identity in the city of Shiraz, the centre of Fars province, and the city of Estahban, a largely traditional/religious city located also in the Pars province.
Theoretically, the paper rests upon Water's ideas, which are actually onsidered to be a synthesis of Giddens and Robertson ways of thinking on - e subject.
The findings show that women in Shiraz are generally more influenced by ~ obalization process and thus their identities have been altered as a result. - h a finding further points to the fact that Shirazi women can be con idered to be more profoundly oriented toward the ideas of modernity, . erefore enjoying a somewhat more modem, secular and non-traditional
entity as compared to women residing in Estahban.
