Meet Masih Alinejad, a journalist from Iran who is also an advocate and activist for religious freedom and women’s rights – the unsung hero who represents the millions of women in Islamic countries.
Since 1979, all women in Iran have been required to cover their hair in public – according to Islamic laws.
In 2014, approximately 3.6 million women in Iran were warned, fined, or arrested by the morality police for inappropriate dress, according to Esmail Ahmadi-Maghaddam, head of the national security forces in Iran. In Islamic countries today, women are still considered to be inferior to men and are limited to doing certain things in public.
