In 2019, Yasaman and Monireh received 16 years in prison for speaking out against Iran’s forced veiling laws. In Iran, it’s a crime for women to appear in public with their hair uncovered. This cruel punishment is part of a wider crackdown on women campaigning against discriminatory forced veiling laws in Iran.

What happened?

On International Women’s Day in 2019, Yasaman Aryani and her mother Monireh Arabshahi took off their headscarves and walked through a women-only train carriage in Tehran to campaign against forced veiling in Iran.

As they handed out white flowers to passengers, Yasaman spoke of her hopes for a future where all women would be free to choose what to wear. After a video of this went viral, Yasaman and Monireh were arrested and sentenced to 16 years in prison for “inciting and facilitating corruption and prostitution” through promoting “unveiling”.
