One of the most effective ways of improving women conditions is studying their status in countries’ development plans so that we can depict a status for them. As a result of that, women might be able to take the most advantage ofthe development process, and the development process would benefit from womenas well. With this end in view, the present paper aims at recognizing the status of women in the development plans of the post-Islamic Revolution, with emphasis on gender justice in higher education. It examines the development plans, elucidates the status of Iranian women in higher education, and comparesit with universal criteria. The findings of the study reveal that since the third development plan the planning for achieving an ideal relation between gender and development has turned into one of the concerns of Iranian authorities yet it has been followed hastily. The findings of the study reveal that although women education has “quantitatively” improved yet in meeting“qualitative”criteria it has not been so efficient. So, to compensate for this shortcoming, the development plans must be effectively directed towards qualitative models.
