Mass Oppression Ignored By Most

Masih Alinejad is a brave woman reporting on the plight of women in Iran.

Under the regime of mullahs since 1979 the beautiful women of that region are forced to drape themselves in hijabs, burqas and other similar symbols of oppressive political power.

The female population is policed, and violators of the “hijab” law may be beaten and arrested.

This is what Alinejad is resisting “with the wind in her hair” and a campaign called “#whitewednesdays” on Twitter in which Iranian women are encouraged to strip off the hijabs en masse.

I support them any way I can.
