Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, ladies in Iran have been compelled to destroy headscarfs when in broad daylight – a standard which is entirely upheld by the ethical quality police. For long, ladies have continuously been battling against the implemented ‘hijab’ and the strict laws overseeing their conduct. Presently men have joined the call to reinforce their campaign for correspondence and have posted photographs of themselves wearing the hijab on online networking, in keen support with the ladies in the nation.
A few pictures of men wearing headscarves while their better halves are actually revealing their heads have earned a ton of fascination on the web. These pictures are a section of My Stealthy Freedom campaign which was begun by Masih Alinejad, an Iranian dissident as of now living in New York and was at first intended to urge Iranian ladies to post photographs of themselves without hijabs. She is currently encouraging men to share pictures utilizing the hashtag #meninhijabs.
Alinejad, a female resident further added –
In our society, a woman’s existence and identity is justified by a man’s integrity, and in many cases, the teachings of a religious authority or government officials influence a man’s misguided sense of ownership over women. So I thought it would be fantastic to invite men to support women’s rights.
