The Iranian woman who captured hearts by standing on a pillar box in Tehran and waving her white hijab in protest is missing and feared to have been arrested.

The woman, whose identity is unknown, was captured on video waving her scarf while having her head uncovered in an apparent reference to the ‘White Wednesday’ protests against clothing restrictions on women in Iran.

Now, a renowned Iranian lawyer says that the brave woman has not been seen in public since her protest and has raised fears that she may have been arrested.
