Just half a century ago, Iran was a secular state. Women used to wear swimsuits and mini skirts, they could freely communicate with men, and get an education. Needless to say, the country was developing quickly. But in 1979, the Islamic revolution happened and everything changed dramatically.

We at Bright Side don’t intend to discuss politics here, we just want to show you the amazing level of freedom this country has had in the past.

Bonus: Vogue photo shoot in Iran, 1969

What do you think Iran would look like today if the revolution hadn’t happened?
