Join Hair 4 Freedom, 100 Reasons for Solidarity, Global Body Riot & more

Since the murder of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Jina Amini for ‘improper’ veiling by the Islamic regime of Iran’s morality police on September 16, there have been ongoing mass protests led by women and girls.

This is being called a women’s revolution, the main slogan of which is ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’ and ‘We don’t want an Islamic state.’ Join us in solidarity actions to show your support!
