During the revolution, Amirshahi was one of the only politically active writers openly supporting Shahpour Bakhtiar. She even published an article in Ayandegan in January 1979, warning the danger of a religious regime, and stressing on the necessity of supporting Bakhtiar, whom she named a national hero and maverick. She has continued her long enduring support for Bakhtiar to date, saying "It's a great pain to be a maverick, but at the same time, it brings you pride, which is a cure to that pain."
