Protest ohne Kopftuch

Im Iran geht der Protest weiter gegen die Kopftuchpflich unvermindert weiter:

Footage has emerged of women standing up to police and strangers in Iran after defying laws by walking the streets without hijabs.

Women filmed themselves without veils to capture some of the abuse they face for failing to adhere to Iran's strict religious rules.

At one point a female campaigner shouts 'spit out your insults' after being told to cover her head while a second film shows a man threatening to slap a young woman for breaking the law.

Another video shows a father standing up for her daughter after a passer-by ordered her to 'observe hijab'. The father stands his ground and tells the man 'I don't believe that nonsense'. 

The veil has been a mandatory dress requirement for women in Iran since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

But a movement called White Wednesdays sees women flouting the regulations by capturing footage and pictures of themselves without their hijabs and posting it online. Some of the clips have appeared on the Twitter account My Stealthy Freedom.
