Protests by women, school girls and university students are in momentum in Iran. The uprisings following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini on the 16th of September at the hands of Iran's morality police. She an instant martyr after she off her headscarf and showed her hair in public. Her death a whole series of demonstrations throughout Iran. Hundreds of thousands of women have Ms Amini's actions to openly a message to Iran's leaders. They off their headscarves en masse in the streets, on buses and in schools. Many their hair coverings and cut their hair in public. They have in the streets chanting their rallying cry of "women, life, freedom".

The latest uprising in Iran is the result of decades of pent-up fury at Iran's regime. Women are tired of forced to their hair. It obligatory in April 1983 for them to do so. Punishments for this law range from financial penalties to imprisonment. The death of 16-year-old Nika Shakarami last week has further the intensity of the protests. Hundreds more have in the past month at the hands of the authorities. An Iranian professor said hair coverings were the tip of the iceberg. She said: "There's a lot of compulsion in Iranian culture, and so the demand freedom. The current protests… engaging students… who are ready to life freely. They're with death and grief and mourning."
