In a general classification of the exclusive-social rights of woman which is obtained under the social life it is divided into two parts of general and special. General right refers to the rights that men and women mutually benefit from (although with partial differences) such as ownership right, occupation right but special rights are rights that exclusively belong to the women community and in fact they are points assigned by the sacred religion of Islam to women and these rights can also be divided into material and spiritual rights.
