 The main purpose of this study is "critical discourse analysis" of "female gender identity" in the official documents of education of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its consequences in the formal female gender education. Materials and Methods: Among the quantitative and qualitative methods in social research, in the present study, the qualitative method and the approach of "critical discourse analysis" have been used. In fact, the present study attempts to use "critical discourse analysis" of official education documents to examine whether there are any indications of the dominance of a particular discourse regarding women's gender identity in these documents: In order to achieve the objectives of the research, five official documents of education of the Islamic Republic of Iran were selected as a sample. Denial of conscious agency (despite its constructive role in discourses); Ambiguity; Semantic obstruction, formation of potentially conflicting semantic fragments, potential and sometimes actual hegemonic conflicts and interferences with informal discourse order, ambiguous patterns born of erroneous equivalence logic and then differences, etc. were evident in the construction of female gender identity. Conclusion: Identity crisis as an undeniable consequence of the discourse fluctuation of documents - failure to clarify the proposition of "gender identity" - in line with the prescriptive policies of its compilers. In other words, the domination of marginal discourse " "Otherness" is done; An event that, with the consequence of the possibility and instability of discourses in the conditions of discourse faltering, will lead to unrest and deconstruction, and ultimately the domination of rival discourse.
