Women in Iran held a haircut action to protest the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died in hospital after being tortured by the morality police while in custody. Journalist Masih Alinejad, known for his oppositional stance, tweeted, “Iranian women are showing their anger by cutting their hair and burning their headscarves to protest the killing of Amini by the morality police. We are fed up with this regime of gender discrimination.”
Turkey’s support for the hair-cutting action that started was not delayed.
Fidan Ataselim, Secretary General of the We Will Stop Femicide Platform, posted a video of her cutting her hair like Iranian women on her social media account with the note “Women resisting for their freedom in Iran, in the country, everywhere in the world”. “Women resisting in Iran will never walk alone,” Ataselim said in the video.
