The first thought that strikes our mind when we think of the Gulf nation Iran is hijab-wearing women, somewhat similar to its neighboring Middle-East countries. But those who don't know the history of the 'typical Islamic country', these pictures of Tehran and the complete country of Iran before the 1979 Islamic Revolution will definitely come as a shock to you.

With 'My Stealthy Freedom', several Iranian women are fighting the Hijab compulsion rule from a long time, and we hope things get back as they were decades ago in the gulf country.
