Protests in Iran’s Tehran city continue

The protests are currently underway in Iran’s Tehran city, Trend reports.

According to the report, protestors chanting different slogans want an end to violence against women.

As of September 19, a number of protests were held in several cities of Iran.

The protests were prompted by the murder of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini by Tehran's morality police.

As previously reported, the girl was beaten while in custody for allegedly violating strict hijab rules.

Hijab was made mandatory for women in Iran shortly after the country’s 1979 revolution. Women who break the strict dress code risk being arrested by Iran’s morality police.

Based on the dress code, women are required to fully cover their hair in public and wear long, loose-fitting clothes.
