Young women's power and courage are on display throughout Iran as they risk their lives and freedom to protest mandatory headscarves and widespread oppression. Young women are leading protests in Iran following the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after her arrest for violating the country's morality code related to her attire. Protesters are resisting the rule mandating that women wear headscarves, the Iranian regime's oppressive treatment of women, as well as the Islamic Republic in general. It's too early to tell how this will end, but the strength and bravery of the protesters is undeniable and worthy of the world's respect.
