Posted on 05/14/2014 3:53:32 AM PDT by wetphoenix
Hundreds of Iranian women are ripping off their hijabs and posting selfies online to the Facebook page "Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women, a photo project that's reaped more than 130,000 likes and sparked conversation about how safe it is for women to forgo their headscarfs.
London-based Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad told the U.K.s he Guardian that since she created the page on May 3, shes been inundated by submissions. "I've hardly slept in the past three days because of the number of pictures and messages I've received, she said.
The hijab is a veil that covers the head and chest and is worn by many Muslim women. Alinejad says she is not anti-hijab (her mother wears one and Alinejad did for 30 years until she left her Iranian village in 2009) but it took time to summon the courage to tell people that she prefers to go without it.

In Iran he says....How the hell do I know!
Sandals are called sandals because....
My idea is that Iran is not as backward as we used to think.
Unlike traditional Middle East “allies” they have a taste to freedom and aren’t that much crazies as the rest muzzies.
Mullah’s regime won’t last forever.
The stones are being piled to mete out Islamic justice. The people of Iran had a chance to throw off the rule of the Mullahs during the green revolution, but Obama turned his back on them and the revolution was out down.
You aren’t following their news carefully.
There are numerous facts of dissent in Iran.
I think the relations between ordinary people and clerics in Iran are close to how it was between people and red governments in Eastern Europe back to the 1980s.
They are going to be punished for that.
Good for them.
Man! That takes guts!
They also ask in Iran or any other Muzzie country, “Does this burka make my butt look big?”.
What’s the proper response to this one?
Big butt is not a problem in a muzzie land.
Leftists will always support Islam because it is anti-Christian.
Who can take all those mustached women?
Persian women are amongst the most gorgeous on the planet.
I guess he can’t tell the difference between Arabs and Persians.
BTW, Iranians aren’t into inbreeding unlike their Sunni neighbors too.
They will be publicly swinging from cranes by their necks next to homosexuals soon enough.
