In Iran, an unprecedented uprising for women’s rights

Demonstrations in Iran despite the repression the taboo of the

normal

On September 13, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was arrested in Tehran for “wearing inappropriate clothes” by the morality police responsible for enforcing the Islamic Republic’s dress code. She died three days later in hospital. His death sparked harshly suppressed protests by regime forces in major cities across Iran, including the capital Tehran. The most viral images on social networks are those where we see Iranian women burning their headscarves. In Iran, women must cover their hair and are not allowed to wear short or tight coats or jeans with holes.
