Iranian Women Are Posting Pics With Their Hair Flying Free In Protest Of Strict Hijab Laws

In 2014, Iran’s morality police warned, fined or arrested an astonishing 3.6 million women for charges related to inappropriate dress. Right now wearing the Islamic hijab is a mandatory practice for all women in Iran.

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian Journalist living in the US, would like to change all of that and grant women the choice to wear their hair covered or uncovered. Alinejad says, “My mother wants to wear a scarf. I don’t want to wear a scarf. Iran should be for both of us.”

In hopes of spreading her message and making social change Alinejad is prompting Iranian women both near and far to post photos of themselves enjoying life with their hair unveiled. Alinjad started a Facebook group called My Stealthy Freedom, which has already massed over 820,000 followers that stand in support of protesting Iran’s strict Hijab laws.
