— Campaign against the compulsory: Lady Sentenced To 20years In Prison For Removing Her Hijab In Iran
— Iranian woman stands up to regime thugs enforcing Hijab dress code.
An Iranian woman has been sentenced to 20 years in jail for removing her hijab to protest the compulsory Islamic covering in December, 2017.
Shaparak Shajarizadeh took to her personal website to announce that she has been jailed for “opposing the compulsory hijab” and “waving a white flag of peace in the street”.
29 people were arrested in February by the police for removing their headscarves as part of a campaign known as “White Wednesdays.” .
Shajarizadeh, 42, was subjected to torture and beatings after her arrest, her lawyer said. In Iran, women showing their hair in public face penalties ranging from a $25 fine to prison time.

As an old woman, I am forced to wear a hijab so as not to provoke a man. What kind of a law is this? It allows a sexually sick men to be free whereas people like #NasrinSotoudeh, who opposed compulsory hijab, are in jail. Women of #WhiteWednesdays are with NasrinSotoudeh pic.twitter.com/HJ0Cupx7MH

Walking without a hijab on Hijab Street. Iranian women are walking unveiled in all four corners of the country to say no to compulsory hijab. Theirs is a fight for their dignity. A fight to take back the streets and vanquish the Islamic Republic’s patriarchy. #WhiteWednesdays pic.twitter.com/LwVX1XI3OV
