Why Iranian women are posting pictures of their uncovered hair



Masih Alinejad is an Iranian journalist and advocate for religious freedom and women’s rights. She is the moderator of My Stealthy Freedom, a Facebook group that has over 800,000 followers. There, she and other Iranian women post photos of themselves removing their headscarves in public — a quiet but brave protest against the Iranian laws that govern not just their clothing, but the way they practice their religion.

    This is REAL feminism, this is something that I could get behind of and support. Not like the crazy feminazis here in America.

    When feminism should actually be put into play, not that overly exaggerated bullshit they have here in the western world.

    Thats the problem when institutional religion encroaches on the liberties of the individual.
    That's why I do not believe in any institutionalized religion.
    Women should not be forced to cover their hair if they chose not to especially not from a coterie of old farts.

    A Persian friend of mine experienced being interrogated by the "hijab police" numerous times. After coming to the US to further her education, she became a Christian and, of course, could not return. She still gets nervous on instinct when she sees large work vans pass by, which in Iran were driven by the "hijab police".

    "since 1979 women in Iran are required by law to cover their hair in public" yet we hear constantly from (western) Muslims and femanazi's that women are not forced to do so. If someone wants to wear a headscarf go for it, the point is that it should be a choice and not forced; having people lying saying that worldwide (including Iran) that is it forced when its documented by fact for the sake of SJW poltical correctness is not going to change said facts.

    If my wife look as good as the girl @ 0:50 she is going to have to wear a burka. Can't be at work worrying about the plumber trying to unclog the pipes.

    These beautiful women in Iran are fighting for their decision not to wear a hijab. Meanwhile, women(feminist) in the West are fat and bitter and are ungrateful they live in such a privileged country.

    Stop saying "wish Iran goes back to what it was" when you don't know what Iran actually "was" and what it actually "is" right now. It wasn't a democratic country before the revolution (ever heard of CIA coup 1953?) and currently, it's not an absolute dictatorship as some might think (ever heard of reformers like Khatami?).
    And about Islam; Islam has been in this country for more than 1000 years and you'd be stupid if you think that it has not been integrated into the Iranian culture after such a long time. Though Iranians have an alternative version of Islam named Shia.

    Wait a minute. I thought muslim women loved hijabs and burkas. It is empowering for women right? That's what I keep hearing from feminists…

    So…rich white feminists in western countries where they are FREE to do whatever they want don't speak for muslim women? Hmmm…you live and you learn…

    Nah, it's okay. Everyone in America thinks it's a trend now. They're imprisoning themselves because they want to feel special.

    "Passing each other without judging each other"
    the women w/o head scarfs passing because they've grown up with the idea of fair play and equality.
    the women with scarfs pass because they are small in number and can't do anything.
    But when enough of them are gathered here, they WILL agitate and DEMAND heads tobe covered and Shariah Law for women.
