Transcript of The Effects of the Iranian Revolution of 1979
Iran at the beginning of 1979 One thing that changed in the Islamic religion after the revolution was that the women were forced to wear veils out in public, and the men were encouraged to have beards. Relations between the Shiite Iran and the Sunni Arab states. Diplomatic relations and the creation of new alliances. Background Government Religion Society and Culture The World's Perception "Until the revolution, Iran was among the most cultured, cosmopolitan countries in the region. It had a progressive movement in art and literature and a sophisticated film and television industry." Personal freedoms are very difficult for the citizens of Iran to keep in today's society:
There are more than 60 private galleries across Tehran; most art cannot be shown publicly.
Clothing choices were influenced by the western culture; now people (especially women) must be very conservative.
Education is separate.
Rock and pop music were popular among many; today traditional music is the main legal genre.
Dancing was common among men and women; now it is illegal to teach young kids to dance.
Barbies are not legal to sell. After the revolutionary war in Iran the religious leaders, known as clerics, were given political power and made restrictions on smoking and drinking alcohol in Iran. Schools began to teach the Koran and the islamic religion, and did not approve of any other religions being practiced. October 1977. January 1978. April 1979. Oil interests and the 1953 coup. Embargoes and sanctions. What events in the memoir Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi, are related to the changes that we have discussed today? Changes in government, religion and Culture in Iran.
