MyStealthyFreedom launches #MenInHijab campaign

Iranian men are showing their support for Iranian women who are striving to abolish the compulsory laws of wearing hijabs. These men are sharing pictures of themselves in hijabs through the My Stealthy Freedom facebook page. It’s obvious that there are many women in Iran who would continue to wear hijabs even if they were not compulsory because for them, it is a symbol of modesty. But for many Iranian women, the hijab has turned into a symbol of their struggle against gender inequality which is used by the regime to oppress women.
