Iranian actress poses without headscarf in support of anti-hijab protests
Iranian actress Taraneh Alidoosti posted a picture of herself on Instagram without a headscarf
The statement is a popular slogan in the demonstrations that sparked after the September 16 death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of the morality police for not wearing "appropriate attire".
The protests have posed one of the biggest challenges to Iran's government since the 1979 revolution. Alongside the photo, Taraneh Alidoosti wrote a poem which read, “Your final absence, the migration of singing birds, is not the end of this rebellion.”
In the past as well, Taraneh Alidoosti has posted many posts on social media critical of Iran's establishment.
Since the beginning of the protests, at least five female Iranian actresses have posted pictures of themselves without the hijab in solidarity with the demonstrations.
