The findings of this study show that in a historical and social context, Iranian cinema presents a picture of xenophobia among women, which marginalizes its repressive nature and emphasizes its benevolent intentions. For this reason, the characters in the films in this situation are mainly unaware of and tolerate the reproduction of discrimination against them by their homosexuals.
