Woman Sentenced To 2 Years In Jail For Removing Hijab In Public

A woman in Iran has been sentenced to 24 months in prison after allegedly removing her hijab in public. 




According to The Guardian, prosecutors claim that she removed the garment on Tehran’s Enghelab Street as a way to “encourage corruption through the removal of the hijab in public.”


Though she was sentenced to two years in jail, the common penalty for violating this rule is typically a small $25 fine.

This news comes just a month after 29 women were arrested for the same offense during an anti-forced hijab protest known as “White Wednesdays” during which women took to the street to protest a mandatory hijab law put in place in 1979.

It's important that the ever-growing conversation about hijab centers around agency and autonomy. White Wednesdays are not a protest against women who choose to wear hijab, but a protest of "forced hijab" as a rule of law. When the wearer's agency, autonomy, and choice isn't denied, protesters see no issue with a woman deciding to wear a hijab.
