Summary This chapter aims to see if English textbooks written for high school students in Iran are in favor of a particular gender. To this end, four English textbooks currently taught in the Iranian high schools were analysed on the basis of Systemic Functional Linguistics. Five categories were identified and two types of analyses were conducted- content analysis and linguistic. The result of the content analysis demonstrated a significant difference between the frequencies in male-female distribution. The linguistic analysis revealed that there are more males in theme and rheme positions as well as participants role, expecting for the Sensor role, The differences could be attributed to the writers' attitudes, culture, and patriarchal structure of the Iranian families.
