As part of the online campaign My Stealthy Freedom, the hashtag wants to challenge morality laws implementing the compulsory headscarf.

On our minds is #MenInHijab, the latest hashtag to shake the social media sphere. Part of online campaign ‘My Stealthy Freedom’ created by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad, the hashtag came about to challenge morality laws implementing the compulsory headscarf, which women of Iran have been forced to wear when out in public since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Arguing that the hijab is an insult to millions of women’s dignity and that wearing it should be a matter of personal choice, Alinejad created a Facebook page where Iranian women could post pictures of themselves not wearing one. The movement has now seen women taking their hijab off in public and even shaving their head in protest, and recently men have tuned into the cause by sharing photos of themselves wearing hijabs, sometimes next to their wives, female friends or relatives with their hair out. The My Stealthy Freedom website is sharing all media coverage, both positive and negative, published inside and outside Iran. Read more here.
