    They also had a secret police that brutally repressed any dissent. See []. The Shah came to power when the CIA overthrew the democratically elected President Mossadegh. So there's that too.

    My mother who grew up in Tehran went to school, drove a Benz and who's mother ran the grocery store that my parents owned. Then the Shah was overthrown and my entire family (aunts/uncles/cousins etc) left for the US. The Ayatolla regressed 100 years of progress.

    An interesting pictorial:
    Photographs [] of students at Cairo University. Pay special attention to the hairstyles/headdress that the women in the pictures have. In the first pictures, you could mistake this photo for any university in the mid 50s. While in 2004, you'd never confuse this for some university in the middle of Oklahoma.

    These photos represent the gradual but steady Islamic radicalization invading the Middle East and the rest of the world in the last three decades. I lived in Egypt until the year 1978 and have never wore a head cover, neither did my mother or grandmother. And this is thanks to a feminist movement that started in Cairo in 1919 under the leadership of the famous Egyptian feminist Hoda Shaarawi.
