Men in Iran have started wearing hijabs in solidarity with women across the country who are forced to cover their heads in public. According to the Independent, wearing a headscarf is strictly enforced by the so-called ‘morality police’ in the country and has remained a part of the law since the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Those who do not abide by the laws are subjected to punishments ranging from fines to imprisonment. Not only that, there are state-funded advertisements on billboards in Iran in support of law, presenting those who do not cover their hair as spoiled and ‘dishonourable.’ Women are also told that by not complying, they are putting themselves at a risk of unwanted sexual advances from men.
