The 70s and Cultural Attitudes In The Mideast

I was browsing pictures of Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan from the 50s through the 70s today. Most of the pictures focused on things like the westernization of those regions. Women wearing “street fashion”, girls attending schools for the first time. I was too young to understand it in the 70s, but there apparently was a cultural revolution going on, at the time. That all changed around 1979. Iran went radical islam, saddaam hussein took over Iraq. Afghanistan got invaded by the USSR.
