As fashion changes of Iranian women since the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day
"It is better to see once than hear a hundred times", - it is this proverb is extremely appropriate images of Iranian women to the Cultural Revolution in 1980 and after. It is hard to imagine that once they dressed as fashionable as Europeans, have the freedom of choice in clothes and make-up. How to change the image of Iranian women since the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day - later in the review.
The women of the harem of the Shah of Iran, Nasser al-Din ShahKadzhara.
In the 1900s, Iranian women wore national dress, covered their heads with a white scarf, the hijab and did not use a single gram of cosmetics. Monobrov considered a sign of beauty.
By 1910, the ninth year there was a social movement for women's rights. Of course, this could not affect the iranok clothes. By the early 1920s, women still wore the hijab, but now it was bright colors, and beneath it could be seen stacked wave of hair strands.
In the 1930s, the 34th Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi said that he was "modernizing" their country. In 1935 Persia was renamed Iran and the governor issued a decree to lift the veil. This was to be a huge step forward, but the women were not ready for such a drastic change. They believed that the lack of a veil humiliates them.
In the early 1940s, Reza Khan abdicated, and the law on the removal of the veil has ceased to operate. However, now wearing a veil was seen as a low-class light and backward outlook, as well as an obstacle to normal in the workplace.
Now look fashionable Iranian women are no different from Europeans or American: wavy hair, makeup on her face, dresses to the knee.
In the period of 1950-1960 in Iran continued to be observed dichotomy (division) of the women. The image of the upper class representatives fully reflect the fashion trends of the West, while Iranian women are more modest means are proud to wear the veil.
Fashionistas generous use eyeliner and constructed high hair on their heads. In the 1960s, women gained the right to vote, and in 1968 Iranian Minister of Education was appointed Farrohru Parsa.
In the 1970s, Iranian women were granted the right to divorce. Then the girls wore short skirts, a blouse with a deep neckline, open swimsuits. They are happy to take part in beauty contests. Looking at the cover of fashion magazines of the time, it is difficult to imagine that this liberated Muslim women, because by the end of 1970 the situation has changed dramatically.
In 1978-79-m years. Iran's Islamic revolution has occurred. Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, fled, and was replaced by spiritual leader Ayatollah Khomeini. In 1980, there was the so-called Cultural Revolution. Educational institutions were closed for an indefinite period, the Minister of Education Farrohru Parsa was executed, and in front of Shia theologians have set the task: dominate the consciousness of the people.
Women under the new regime had to be very hard. They were deprived of many rights and ordered to again wear the black chador and headscarf-hijab. Those who dared to go out without this garment, often stoned to death.
After 10 years, women were allowed to wear colorful headscarves, got a little bit of visible hair. In 2009, there was a green revolution. Women took active part in it, hoping that they would get more rights.
By 2010, in the manner of dress, some progress has been made: instead of hijab Iranian women began to wear a regular scarf, many of them can be seen Jeans.
