The latest Facebook phenomenon: Iranian women, posting beaming photographs – without their traditional headscarves, known as hijabs.
The Facebook page, called Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women, was created by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad. It has garnered more than 183,000 “likes” in two weeks.
Although many women proudly choose to wear a hijab, these women see it as an expression of freedom to go without their head coverings.
Below, see more photos from Alinejad’s Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women.
