Ooooh Iran...you so naughty (used to be)



Heartbreaking to see how liberal and modern they used to be.. There are younger folks who have lived their whole lives repressed & brainwashed..

and YES I DO know what a bum the Shah was, but what they have now is even worse..

The photos are amazing...

can't get them to display here.. check them out..

From women sporting Farrah Fawcett haircuts at a party to a couple posing for photos in the snow, images of life across Iran in the 60s and 70s portray a vibrant kingdom on the brink of change.

The photos were all taken in Iran before the Islamic Revolution, which saw the ousting of King Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and the installment of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini - a shift that would have long-lasting and far reaching implications.

Compared to previous rulers, Pahlavi was revolutionary - he banned the hijab, saying it suppressed women, encouraged education for everyone and granted women the right to vote.

The Iranian women's rights movement was going strong in the 1960s and 70s, and many women joined the work force and mixed freely with men.

Images of young Iranians at parties and in magazine ads reveal the tension between modern and traditional influences tussling for supremacy.

At the time, actresses who were later banned from performing posed up in short skirts for magazines, while locals were photographed skiing and wearing swimsuits and Miss Iran contestants enjoyed paddle-boat outings

1. Women initially protested and marched against being covered in Iran post-revolution.

2. Something seems odd or fake about all those photos.


I personally dont believe most Iranians where as those photos try to depict.

some of the photos back then still show women with Hijabs.. Its a muslim thing and the religion didnt change there significantly.
