The White Revolution Decoration (Sepahi Enghelab Sefid) was created in 1964 to reward corpsmen and women who participated in Iran's White Revolution between 1963 and 1979. The White Revolution, or the Shah and People's Revolution, involved a series of reforms initiated by Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi which were aimed at Iran's peasantry and were intended to advance Iran's steps towards modernization. The White Revolution included land reforms, the sale of state-owned factories, the expansion of transportation networks, the eradication of disease, the enfranchisement of women, and the promotion of literacy amongst other reforms and significantly contributed towards the economic and technological advancement of Iran. Conversely, the White Revolution also contributed to the Islamic Revolution and the downfall of the Shah in 1979.
