Iranian women call on Western tourists to violate hijab law to fight against oppression

As more and more Western tourists visit Iran, foreign women are being urged to break the country’s strict Islamic dress code to “make a stand” about the restrictive laws.

It is illegal for women to go out in public without wearing headscarf in the country, where thousands of undercover agents and “morality police” patrol the streets to check for violations.

Women found to have their hair or bodies inadequately covered can be publicly admonished, fined or even arrested.

    What a great idea. Women love to stand up to the patriarchy.

    Typically Muslim.
    Get foreign infidels to do your dirty work for you.

    • They are trying to do something in one of the most oppressive regimes on the planet.

      • Brenda

        So they get foreigners to do it for them?
        Because foreigners haven’t been thrown into Iranian prisons and languished for years on frivolous charges before.

        • They’re getting foreigners to stop thinking that chadoors are “quaint” and “ethnic”.

      This movement originated in Iran and it has many Iranian members IN Iran. The fact tourists are now being approached to join in is simply the result of a rise in the number of Westerners visiting. This is a positive development.

    Western feminists are more likely to do the exact opposite.

      Indeed they will wear the body bag and mask out of solidarity with Islam, while screeching that all white non Muslim males rape and abuse women.

  • Won’t happen.

    Hijabs are “quaint”.

    For your amusement:

      Now THAT’S a feminist. Beating the crap out of some old self-righteous, finger-wagging harpy.

      • Too bad that she is someone feminists in the West will ignore.

    I guess Iranian women don’t feel the same about the hijab as western feminists do. Maybe we could make a trade. Our feminists fpr theirs.

      Anything would be an improvement over Western marxist feminists.
