Iran's hijab protest catches on Iran's hijab protest catches on

The wearing of headscarves by Iranian women has been obligatory since Iran's Islamic Revolution of 1979.

Mohaved's identity was concealed until Iranian human rights lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, announced on her Facebook page that Movahed had been released on Sunday (January 28).

Now, in another sign that the protest could be gathering momentum, pictures posted on social media yesterday showed at least three other women standing on top of telecoms boxes in Tehran in an apparent show of solidarity. Let women decide themselves about their own body'.

According to reports, the mother-of-one was arrested shortly after her protest on December 27, and taken to a detention centre with her 20-month-old daughter.

Adele transforms into country music icon Dolly Parton, and it's really something
It's not entirely clear why she was dressed up as the country queen, but plenty of people are sharing their love the look. Adele had her white blouse opened to show off some very Dolly-esque cleavage, and held a guitar while pouting.

Judicial officials have said around 1,000 people were arrested during the week-long protests which spread to around 80 towns and cities across Iran. The announcement signaled an easing, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year. A growing number of women, predominantly in Tehran, have begun refusing to wear a hijab while driving, arguing that a auto is a private space where they can dress more freely.

Women showing their hair in public can be jailed for up to two months or fined $25 (aprox Rs 1500). Alinejad also created the campaign #whitewednesdays previous year, which called on women to wear white in protest of the strict laws.

It is "dedicated to Iranian women inside the country who want to share their "stealthily" taken photos without the veil", and aim to be a "living archive" of their fight.

Women are only allowed to show their face, hands and feet in public and are supposed to wear only modest colours.
