As an Iranian woman who spent most of my life between revolution and war I have observed a massive transformation in Iranian women during last three decades. Segregation came to Iran as a culture of the fundamentalist-theocratic dictatorship by arrival of the Revolution of 1979.

The transformation happened so quickly that girls from grade 1 covered from head to toe by dark uniforms and black hijab. The first decade of the revolution, war between Iran and Iraq happened and women have been the biggest target of humiliation by the theocratic regime.

Women with all limitation did not stop going to university and work in public and private sectors. 60% of women could take seats in universities and it was not anticipated based on the regressive culture for women.

The second decade of the revolution; women started to transform their physical body to oppose the mandatory hijab and because of that Iran turned to the biggest consumer of nasal surgery in the world. Cosmetic surgery, extreme diet and exotic fashion have become a trend in Iran especially among women. Repression and suppression of Iranians especially women still continue and it has created the new culture of resistance.
