Iranian women take off their hijab

Ordinary Iranian women created a Facebook page called stealthy freedom or secret freedom.

Islamic Revolution started 35 years ago. Since then it has been illegal for a woman to leave the house without wearing a hijab or headscarf. The punishment is a fine or imprisonment.
An Iranian woman said, “My hair was like a hostage to the government.” It is so true.

“My problem is not having to wear the headscarf. My problem is not having a choice,” writes another Iranian woman on the Facebook page.

I say bravo girls, you go girls! You take off your hijab forever, not for a few seconds. Not secretly, but openly. But would they be able to do it? So many girls and women are executed in Iran for not practicing Islam properly.

I feel so sad. Women, only because they are women, they are not allowed to enjoy the rights and freedom they deserve. Women have to take off their hijabs only for a few seconds to know what freedom feels like. Human species sucks. It has not yet made its women free from the cage it has made for women. I am ashamed of human species.

    I thought it was quite nice to see (presumably) Iranian women in “Western” football fan outfits during the World Championship (see e.g. here http://english.alarabiya.net/en/variety/2014/06/18/Iranian-women-at-World-Cup-spark-social-media-jibes.html).

    Question: if a woman shaves her head or loses all her hair for some reason, does she still have to wear the scarf?
