These were especially initiated by the opposition. It is in this respect that Shah escaped after realizing that he had no place, in Iran. The new political system developed, in 1979. It must be noted that literature also has an impact on the Iranian society. Literature was fundamental and most authors were against Shah’s westernization policy. This attribute is mostly characterized by the Persian culture. An example of such authors is Jalal Al-e Ahmad. Some of his key literary works on the same topics include his book Gharbzadegi (Weststruckness) and his novel (The School Principal). His wife, Simin Daneshvar, was also a prominent writer. She authored the book entitled “Savushun”. These are also some of the authors who were adversely harassed by the SAVAK (Axworthy60). In my opinion, the Shah’s regime and his special SAVAK team concede to be the most noteworthy factor that initiated the writing of the Reading Lolita in Tehran. After this white revolution, Nezhat Nafisi’s mother became one of the women who emerged as parliamentarians. This was the first time a woman was in parliament, and this is what influenced the writer to compose the novel. This clearly reflects the freedom of women, in Iran. Ahmed Nafisi, her father, had a strong relationship with the mayor of Tehran. Their relationship was strong and it was a shock to her when she received the information that her father was arrested by the SAVAK on charges of bribery and corruption. This obviously changed her perception about the relationship. However, this was not the true picture. The then prime minister, Hassan, had arrested her father on a false account. Ahmed had shown splendid skills in public speaking and had held numerous State offices. Prime Minister Mansur, therefore, felt that...
Defying the Iranian revolution
Even the opposition did not pose a strong threat to him in the beginning of his reign.

Mosaddeq was arrested by the cooperation between the Iranian army and CIA. After this incident, Shah created the SAVAK, in 1957. The was responsible for training this group. SAVAK’s task was to suppress opponents of the Shah of Iran and give a close watch over the people. They also fought opponents of the Iranian people. They employed all kinds of torture and starvation in prison, in addition, to the physical liquidation of the opposition leaders. Shah announced, in 1963, that the white revolution will bring women's freedom and it would support the social life. He also maintained that the industrial life and the laws that protect the family would be appropriated. He particularly focused on saving children and women from oppression from men. Therefore, this improved the relations with other countries and the Iranian people had a peaceful life. Khomeini incited people against the government, and carried out demonstrations against Shah. Later, SAVAK arrested Khomeini and sent him to exile in Turkey in 1963. This was the cause of the demise of the Shah's rule. The Iranian people are mostly conservative, especially those who live in the suburbs. Azar hoped for a better Iran after shah’s regime. She hoped for justice and democracy after the repressive regime falls.
