This Video Of An Iranian Woman Taking Off Her Hijab Is Taking The Internet By Storm

Published on 2 June, 2017 at 6:33 pm By

The world knows how strict Iran is. But that was not the case earlier. Before the Iranian Revolution of 1970, Iran was heavily influenced by western culture and it was common to sight women wearing the latest trends of skirts, shirts and shoes.

However, ever since the revolution of 1970, the government imposed a strict ban on western dresses and made it mandatory for women to wear a Hijab.

Since the last few years, thousands of Iranian women have started taking off the Hijab in protest and are posting photographs on Facebook and other social media. British-Iranian journalist, Masih Alinejad, started the “Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women” campaign to protest against Iran’s 35-year-old rule requiring women to wear a hijab in public.

 



The Facebook page for the campaign garnered 30,000 likes within the first five days of its creation. Alinejad commented,

I just asked women to send selfies of their private moments of freedom. When I was in Iran, I would take my head scarf off when I was out in a field or some place private, and I wondered how many Iranian women [did the same]. Apparently a lot.

With no political backing from the left, the young women in Iran are independently fighting against wearing the hijab. The women have been voting for most liberal candidates who promised less restrictions but in reality, such promises rarely come true.
