Campaign set up by London-based Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad attracts more than 130,000 likes on social media site
Thousands of Iranian women are taking off their veils and publishing pictures of themselves online, igniting a debate about the freedom to wear or not wear the hijab.
A Facebook page set up by London-based Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad 10 days ago has attracted more than 130,000 likes, with women across Iran sending unveiled pictures taken in parks, at the seaside and in the streets.
"My stealthy freedom while driving in the streets of Tehran," wrote Maryam alongside an image showing her behind the wheel. "I like to feel the wind blowing on my face."

Liberal brain freeze.
The internet: a tool to help you move past the 7th century.
And next week they will probably have their ears cut off if not worse.
Their cult moon god allah will be pleased....
What next! They’ll be showing a little ankle!
Iranian and Arab women are very beautiful. Too bad they are Muslim.
In America, facebook gets you fired. In Iran, I’m sure it will get you killed.
Back in the ‘70’s I had a college friend who worked in the airport. He said as soon as the Iranians arrived the women would throw away the hijab and the men would buy cigarettes.
None of the ones I knew in school wanted to return to Iran. I often wondered how they faired, the men returning addicted to tobacco and the women, some of whom were pretty, having to cover themselves.
I took a 7:30am flight from Amman to London a few years ago. A very well acquitted woman in hijab sat in front of me, one seat to the left. At wheels up she removed her head cover and fully reclined her seat. When the plane leveled off she ordered beer for breakfast.
Before the revolution...
“When the plane leveled off she ordered beer for breakfast.”
Okay, I don’t care who y’are. That thar’s funny!
The Shah was deposed for trying to drag the brain dead muslims from the 7th century all the way forward to the 17th century.
Freedom, they want freedom!
The sound you heard was a liberal feminist exploding.
The Iranian students here do not wear the hijab. It is usually only worn by married Muslim women and the occasional feminist convert.
The local mosque suffered a church split a few years ago. The North Main St mosque is more liberal than the South Main St mosque
Here is an image of Neda, the martyr, wearing a Chedora:
Thanks, that was an excellent nit. :’)
Liberals for the first time turned their effective boycott machine on someone from the ROP. It’s about time, but I won’t criticize them for it, as better late than never. The question is, did they finally figure out how nasty Islam is to everything they hold dear?
I know a wonderful liberal feminist Iranian lady who demonstrated against the Shaw back in the late ‘70s. Her father was well placed in the Shah’s oil ministry and she was a thoroughly westernized university student. She was also a rebellious daughter in the Western style. She said it was initially exhilarating to be shoulder to shoulder in the streets with the Muslim radicals. Then the Muslims started insisting that the leftist girls cover themselves, and when they didn’t they would beat them.
