Introduction

Iran: Not what you'd expect? I already knew some facts about Iran since I studied about Iran earlier in ninth grade. I already had a view of the Iranian people based on what I had learned. Therefore I knew most of my expectations were valid. I thought the Iranian people were very strict with religion (Islam) and that Iran was ruled in a religious way. From what I heard and learnt earlier I also expected woman in Iran to be below the men and ruled by them. I also thought that Iran was a poor country and that most Iranians were poor. My view pretty much was a strict country ruled by extremely religious leaders and completely supported by the inhabitants that were isolated from the rest of the world. ...read more.

The Iranian woman are on the way though, they're getting more and more freedom and the cloths is just one way to protest. Iran has for a long time been influenced by the west. It has been allied with USA since the 1950's thanks to the oil resources in Iran (that also made Iran rich). . USA has been influencing Iran in other ways as well.

Conclusion

This might be because a lot of the Iranian culture has been kept trough time thanks to Islam and by keeping its own language. For the moment trough, the truth is that the government with the religion is pushing down Iran the religion at home is different from the one forced on to them. The most of what I expected about Iran were true. The government is controlling the people and it's very strict in Iran thanks to them. The people and especially women are being living by a lot of rules as I thought. What I didn't expect though was that they are protesting and disobeying against a lot of the rules. I also was wrong when I thought that they were isolated from the rest of the world because thanks to the internet they are connected to the world. Iran are also not a poor country and not all the people support the leaders. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
