It is illegal for women in Iran to go out in public without wearing headscarf in the country, where thousands of undercover agents and "morality police" patrol the streets to check for violations. Women found to have their hair or bodies inadequately covered can be publicly admonished, fined or arrested.
However, thousands of Iranian women have been risking punishment by taking off their hijabs （headscarves） in public and snapping photos. The campaigner, Masih Alinejad , is urging Western tourists to join the fight against compulsory dress codes.
Alinejad said she had received emails from female tourists from the UK, Sweden, Belgium, and other nations complaining they had felt uncomfortable being forced to wear the hijab on their holidays. "I thought it would be easy to wear the headscarf but after two weeks, my opinion really changed." a Belgian woman wrote.
"Iran is a beautiful country but it’s not heaven for women." Alinejad said.
