Protest Performance, Cutting Off My Hair for Women, Life, Freedom Movement
For Iranian women cutting off their hair is a sign of mourning and defiance against injustice. In Women, Life, Freedom Movement is a conscious form of protest the beauty that was decreed to be hidden.
Women in Iran have dealt with compulsory hijab and veiling with the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979 which was aided by the West. Since then, the government has taken tight over women and girls and has tried to mold them in timid, helpless women who need men to live, but the long history of women movement in Iran with courageous women the government failed every step of the way. They would come up with new restrictions, but the women of Iran defy them over and over. The gender-based apartheid regime and its patriarchal government with morality police has made life impossible for women and girls in Iran until the killing of Mahsa Amini by the morality police for bad hijab. The uprising was ignited on September 15, 2022 and, continuing until their victory for freedom and democracy replaces the current brutal regime in Iran.
