IRAN BEFORE THE HIJAB

This footage is truly amazing.
A mostly unveiled women protest in Teheran in 1979, right after the Revolution (that was not an islamic revolution at first but a communist and atheist movement) asking Khomeiny to not interfear with women's rights and freedom...

We all know what happened next.

"Less than 3 weeks after Islamic Regime gained power in Iran, it started attacking women rights by enforcing Hijab and other reactionary Islamic Laws on Women. Women movement reacted and on March 8th, 1979, more than 35 thousands of them came into Tehran's Street and protest against the Islamic Regime. This documentary film is made by a French film crew and is in french originally which was translated to English by a member of Iran Solidarity - Vancouver."
