Women In Iran Protest Against Dress Code By Going White

Iranian women draped themselves in white as a sign of protest against the mandatory dress code.

Many women took to the social media on Wednesday to post photographs of themselves wearing white as a way to protest.

Since the revolution of 1979, every woman in Iran, including tourists, have been forced to cover their heads in public and dress, so-called “modestly.” For that reason, Masih Alinejad, an activist, decided to take a stand and has started to encourage women to fight for their rights.

Women were asked to group up and post photos on social media with the hashtag #WhiteWednesdays

Alinejad says, “My goal is just empowering women and giving them a voice. If the government and the rest of the world hear the voice of these brave women then they have ti recognize them.
