Iranian women protest the government’s treatment of women by removing the hijab
Across Iran, women staged a protest against their government by marching in public places without hijabs.
The protest took place on July 12 and was documented on social media by women using the hashtags #WalkingUnveiled and #No2Hijab.
A media outlet, Iran International, showed several videos of women in public spaces in their cities without wearing hijabs.
Iran has compulsory veiling laws and women have been sent to jail for protesting the law, requiring women to wear the hijab in public.
