Iranian Women In The 1970s Revealed In Old Fashion Magazines

iranian women in the 1970s feat
The dress code and general vibe in Iran used to be much more liberal than it is now. Believe it or not but before the Islamic revolution, it was a more secular, western-oriented culture. The Iranian women in the 1970s showed a lot more skin and let their hair down more often to have fun and make cool pictures. Literally. Now, Iranian women are required to cover their hair, necks, and arms and in general there is a lot less freedom going on there in the name of religion.
Times have definitely changed. Just take a look at all these old magazine covers. They’ll show you how much more freely these Iranian women in the 1970s expressed themselves back than. Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
