Iranian men are protesting a compulsory law which forces women to wear hijabs. They express their solidarity by donning headscarfs themselves and posting images of their actions on social media with #MenInHijab hashtag.

Iran wasn't always like that. Everything started back in 1983 when the country passed conservative laws to prevent men from sexually advancing towards women. One way of ensuring this was making sure women wore modest clothing in public as well as a hijab. In case of disobedience, detention and even lashes were introduced as punishments. Nonetheless, eventually women began rebelling.

In 2014 Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad founded an online movement against the enforced hijab, called My Stealthy Freedom. One of her campaigns is #MenInHijab. It advocates women's rights and highlights the violation of freedoms that strict dressing laws are causing. Men who join the cause openly wear the hijab in public and share their support with the whole world online. Bored Panda invites you to join the movement and show your support

I like the message..., but I'd be lying if I didn't admit my first thought was "Is he cold?"

It's so unfair. World need to speak up for them! So many people in Europe and USA talk about hijab and freedom of choice, empowerment, etc. and they even want to promote it.. If they would really care about these values, they would in first place care about whole countries and nations where wearing hijab, niqab, burqa is forced.
