The Islamic Revolution of Iran has been a very crucial factor in creating fundamental changes, a consequence of which is the establishment of religious government. In the early years of the fourth decade of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, the Iranian society faced pervasive changes. Factors such as mass media, including the internet, satellites, etc, the growth of educational level and the presence of the young generation with increasingly material values and other authoritative groups and the information age have resulted in changes in people’s expectations of the existing roles in the society.
