    And the rights of most Iranian women - rural and poor - were if anything worse under the Shah.  Maternal mortality has gone down and female enrollment in universities has gone up.  I'm not justifying the excesses of the Islamic Republic, but the Shah's reign was not a halcyon time for women unless you were a daughter of the upper class in Iran.
