Women Standing Up in Iran.
Aug. 15, 2019
In 2019, while most can post selfies every day, woman in Iran are imprisoned for it. They are being imprisoned simply for daring not to wear a headscarf. This is a deep injustice, another of the attempts to subjugate and silence women. But in Iran and worldwide there is building resistence to this oppression.
This woman bravely created a "plinth" for herself to publicise the movement against the enforced wearing of a headscarf. Women singing is also outlawed, but on the 'My Stealthy Freedom' site many Iranian women post videos of themselves singing, becoming part of a chorus of voices raised for freedom.
