    In the decades before the Islamic revolution of 1979, Iran was ruled by the Shah whose dictatorship repressed dissent and restricted political freedoms. But he also he pushed the country to adopt Western-oriented secular modernization, allowing some degree of cultural freedom.

    Under the Shah's rule, Iran's economy and educational opportunities expanded. Britain and the US counted Iran as their major ally in the Middle East, and the Shah forcefully industrialized large segments of the country. However, the Shah's increasingly authoritarian measures and his eventual dismissal of multiparty rule set the stage for the infamous revolution.

    This is 2015. Far back on head and bright colors are the norm. I expect gradual loosening of restrictions, the mullahs are a bunch of old assholes and will be dead soon enough.

    Really is a shame. People walking free, enjoying themselves and family, educating themselves, etc. Now nothing.

    I see faces and wrists. Wow, that is a lot of skin showing. :eek:

    Is that some kind of "we treat women well" PR pic?

    I hope you're right and it does loosen.

    I would say a higher percentage of women get college degrees in Iran than America. Getting a job is harder because of institutional sexism but they are very liberal about education.

    But look, these people look so miserable.

    I'm not saying they don't have restrictions on dress, just saying those other photos are not the correct representation.

    People party at home anyways.

    Yeah the PR pics above are fun aren't they. You really believe the photos with the guys taking the "act happy" pics? Wow. You should move there then. But lets get real about what A LOT of Iran is....
