Melek Mosso joined a legion of women showing their support for the anti-hijab protests in Iran. A video that has now gone viral on social media shows the artist cutting her hair on stage in solidarity with the protesters in Iran.
The protests erupted in Iran after the death of 22-year-old Mahasa Amini, who died after being in detention by morality police enforcing strict hijab rules on September 17,2022. Ten days after her death, the protests have now spread across at least 46 Iranian cities, towns and villages.
Video clips circulating on social media show women protesters cutting their hair and removing their hijab and setting them on fire to protest against the strict dress code enforced in the country.
Strict dress code imposed
Under Iran’s sharia, or Islamic law, women over the age of seven are obliged to cover their hair and wear long, loose-fitting clothes. A July 5 order by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi to enforce the hijab law has resulted in a new list of restrictions on how women can dress. Offenders face public rebuke, fines or arrest.
