Iranian women have taken to social media to protest the repressive government practice of legislating what items of clothing can be worn, and what items must be worn.

Afraid of violent reprisals and repercussions, these civil rights activists have taken to filming their escapades without hijab and posting them to facebook. You can find their facebook page here. Please “Like” their page and support their struggle.
