|Women, girls and students protesting in Iran
Protests by women and girls are gaining in momentum in Iran. They began following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in September at the hands of the morality police. She became a martyr after she removed her headscarf and showed her hair in public. Her death started demonstrations around Iran. Hundreds of thousands of women have copied Ms Amini's actions to send a message to Iran's leaders. They took off their headscarves in the streets, on buses and in schools. Many burnt their scarves and cut their hair. They marched in the streets chanting "women, life, freedom".
