It was Masih Alineja, an Iranian activist and journalist who lives in New York, who launched the protest of the veil. It all started with a television campaign where women who do not wear the veil were denigrated for being lascivious and immoral. So in Iran many men decided to wear for one day the veil which became compulsory for women after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. It was a very real protest against the abuses committed by the “moral police” who, all over the country, do not hesitate to punish with fines or imprisonment women who do not adequately cover their heads under the hijab. The hashtag #MenInHijab reached every corner of the world in a few minutes.
