Abstract:  
Woman as a member of the society has different place and roles in the penal system. Sometimes woman suffers from a crime and some other time she commits the crime herself. Besides being a convinct or a victim as a citizen she can be a witness or judge in a criminal justice. Since our laws are drawn form Islamic jurisprudence and have paid a considerable attention to the role and place of women we can ask what are the citizenship rights and place of these women (convict of commitment of a crime)? If Quran and prophetic traditions are to be taken the basis and criterion in an Islamic society and the vehicle of application of laws then we will give value to the stature of humans (be it a man or a woman) and adopt value-related measures and plans for this social group in the principles and basis of the citizenship rights. Here one can refer to such rights as prohibition of the solitary confinement of women and communication with the family particularly with their children and proper diet which is under the supervision of the health experts and keeping contact with the outside world. Of course, recent developments in judiciary system of our country have paved the path for future alternative punishments for the female convicts that would have better reformative effect on the citizens because the Islamic religion is rooted in compassion and the penal laws should seek to reform the individual. The current essay has been prepared using descriptive and analytic method.
