Mens muslimske kvinner i Europa i øgende grad dækker sig til, så vil iranske kvinner have frihet. De de seneste uger har moralpolitiet haft travelt med at tage disse oprørske kvinder, der lægger ud billeder af sig selv uden hijab på Instagram og andre sociale medier. Såsom her på Facebooksiden My Stealthy Freedom. Hårtildækning er vanskelig at undgå for Irans kvinder, al den tid det hele tiden er vagtsomme øjne, der følger dem overalt. Nogle kvinder har i protest barberet af sit hår. For hvorfor skal man påtvinges hijab, hvis man intet hår har?

Stealthy freedom

Barske damer

Women in Iran are cutting their hair short and dressing as men in a bid to bypass state ‘morality’ police who rigorously enforce penalties for not wearing a hijab. A number of women have shared photos of themselves in public with their hair uncovered on Instagram and other social media. The women have cut their hair short in some images and in others are dressed in clothes more typically associated with men.

Altså, mens vi i Europa bivåner, og i nogle tilfælde udsettes for, “retten til at dække sig til”, så kæmper andre kvinder for retten til at slippe.

‘It is a serious cultural war between two lifestyles. For women, their hair is their identity and making it short to just avoid the morality police is really heartbreaking, but in a way, it is brave.’

Noen klæder sig også i “mandlige” tøj. Det er let at glemme, at vi tager for givet, at vi kan gå i bukser…
