One of the dimensions of democracy is the homological, responsive and welcoming spaces. Power in space includes a variety of features and different aspects. Hence, the relationship between women and men in the city can be analyzed with theories of power and social inequality. It should be mention that the authority and domination in decision making and space utilization, designing, restrictions affect the behavior and nature of urban public spaces. In this research, we try to consider the dimensions of the right to the city in urban space from the perspective of women. Required data were collected through questionnaires and interviews. Methodologically speaking, the type of research is applied research and the analyzes are performed by quantifying the data and using SPSS software. Accordingly, two sets of measures were questioned. First, Requirements for the presence and participation of women in urban spaces. Second, The diversity of women's participation and participation in urban spaces. The first factors are called “the right to the city” factors and the second factors have been known as “The right to difference Results show that, the privilege of the points attributed to the right to the city is greater than those of the right to difference. Adding to this, the other Inference refers to the fact that There is a meaningful relationship between variables such as age, marital status, level of education and duration of stay in space with the right to the city. In most of the questions, women have acknowledged that they are faced with serious restrictions in public spaces. The Path analysis of the variable which affect the right to the city and the participation of women shows that Two measures of “diversity of people and The attendance with the aim of spending leisure time have the least effect. On the other hand, four measure The variety of current activities in space, Safety and lightening of space at night, Lack of hidden spaces, the diversity of the presence of people (with the aim of buying), have the most impact on the right to the city and the feelings of women's participation.
