During the recent years, Iranian women have shown an increasing interest to study in universities. Now, women include 60 percent of university entrance applicants. This paper reports on research investigating the relationship between women participation in universities, and their employment situation. To analysis the findings different theoretical views are considered including cost benefit theory, public choice theory, conflict theory, feminist theory and human capital theory. This paper explains the employment's situation among female graduates in different majors with the following questions: 1. What is the degree of the availability of employment for the female graduates? 2. What is the degree of the availability of employment in the main university department for the female graduates? 3. In the case of the availability of employment for the female graduate, what are the effective factors in attracting female graduates to the labour market? 4. In the case of the non availability of employment for the female graduates, what are the obstructions for entering the job market?
