Iran has imposed strict standards of modesty on women since the Islamic revolution in 1979, including a law that compels them to keep their heads covered in public.

Four years ago, the Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad began posting photos of herself on Facebook without the traditional Muslim head covering known as the hijab. Alinejad had left Iran by then, But her social media campaign has shaken Iran.
