By Abigail Allison

Religions Represented In Iran

Christianity and Judaism are the major religions that are focused on in Iran.

Role Of Women In Society

Before the revolution, Iranian society practiced public segregation of the sexes. Women practiced the use of the Chador (or veil). Women were confined to home, where they performed the various domestic tasks associated with managing a household and reading children.

Education and Family Structure

The education is divided into five cycles; pre-school, primary, middle (or guidance), secondary, and post- secondary. Taught in the language called Farsi. The first day of school is September 22nd. Higher education and universities institutes are governed by a board of trustees.

The family structure is united, closed and orderly. It's kept together by obligation and mutual trust.
