Masha Amini passed away in a hospital from a coma after suffering a police beating for showing some hair at the train station and incorrectly wearing the hijab in Iran. Now Iranians are protesting for women’s rights regarding what they can wear and start their battle on September 16, 2022.

Masha Amini’s death has started a protest for Iranian women and they are now burning their Hijabs (which are head scarfs), cutting their hair short, and striking back at Iran for their unfair law about women’s clothing. During their protest, many have been killed in their pursuit to get rid of the law that women have to wear Hijabs.

Actress, and activist Nazanin Boniadi, is helping to pursue the no Hijab rule by speaking up to the public to get them to help support the cause. Nazanin has also started protests in Los Angeles where almost 20,000 people are coming to support. Nazanin Boniadi is saying “They’re fighting with all they have. The problem is we need to stand by them.” While women have been protesting, men have also joined in to help make a stand against the morality police of Iran. Right now many people around the world are helping to protest for no Hijabs in Iran and are helping make a difference.
