The video below was posted on YouTube to show what people are saying is one of the spontaneous protests in Tehran by Iranian women. The woman reportedly danced on Tehran’s metro in protest against laws limiting women and such public displays.
We have seen in the past that the new young generation of Iranians pose a serious challenge to the medieval limitations imposed by the Islamic Republic. More than half of Iran’s population is under the age of 35 years.
Given past draconian sentences for women confronting these laws, including the recent sentencing of a woman for trying to see a volleyball game, this is a particularly brave act.
