This study investigates the representation of women in Lori and Laki Folk songs. Moreover this survey manifests how sociological concepts like realism, humanism and equality are represented at these songs. Research questions are formed in connection with recognizing the categories related to women and sociological concepts. Our conceptual frameworks are based on Feminism critical Theories and sociology of content. Using qualitative content analysis of the single stanza in songs and summarizing method in analyzing of lyrics, it is feasible to create induction categories and reducing them into basic categories based on the main themes. Finally utilizing these basic categories, we analyze the contents and recognize the general model that underlies in the songs. In qualitative analysis of songs, all sociological concepts including realism, equality, human-centrism, collectivism that have a consecutive influence on songs have been shown. Furthermore the discussed categories in questions concerning women representation in the songs completely illustrate that there is a humanistic view towards women and also all of their rights are respected. Although most of the songs narrators are male, generally there is a non-gender language in songs. Another important finding is the historical background of many of these songs that may dates back to primitive, Matriarchy, and patriarchy era. Contrary to the most of the feminism theories, this part of popular culture (songs) not only is not against women, but also shows a higher position of women in pre history era (matriarchy).
