Woman was detained after standing on telecoms box to raise headscarf on a stick in repeat of protest last month
A second woman has been arrested in Iran for protesting against the country’s compulsory hijab rules after standing on a telecoms box on a Tehran street, taking off her headscarf and holding it aloft on a stick.
The protest follows a similar action last month against the country’s requirement that women cover themselves from head to toe in public.
These two women are being hailed as heroes by many Iranians for protesting the compulsory hijab rule that has violated women’s rights in Iran for nearly four decades. pic.twitter.com/qSFOZpOkrg
