It’s illegal for women in Iran to appear in public without wearing a headscarf – or hijab – but dozens have posted bare-headed photographs of themselves to a Facebook page called Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women.
Punishment in Iran for not wearing a hijab ranges from a fine to imprisonment, but despite the risks around 150 photographs have been uploaded to the site, which at the time of writing has over 140,000 likes.
The photographs show women in huge variety of places and poses.
