Today, on February the first, we celebrate World Hijab Day. It was first celebrated in 2013 in order to educate the world on what wearing a hijab stands for. More importantly, this day is celebrated in the aim of protecting the right of an individual to wear one, neither forcing them nor banning them.

There's been a lot of controversy regarding hijab law in Iran. The media there is also guilty of portraying Iranian women as sad and powerless. While in some Muslim religion cases this might be true, it is definitely not the most accurate description of a modern Iranian woman and modest fashion.

To deny the stereotype that women wearing a hijab are weak and unhappy, Bored Panda collected a list of Iranian women street fashion photos, depicting them wearing hijabs proudly and simply looking incredible. Most of them come from a Muslim fashion blog called The Tehran Times, the first street style blog from Tehran, Iran aimed at showing the creativity, style and high fashion of young Iranian women.

Simple question to some people commenting here. Do You Support Mandatory Forced On All Women Muslim and Non Muslim!!! Head Covering???

Michael Godfrey

I support the right of a culture to stipulate its boundaries ... and then explore its potentials to revise and when appropriate expand them. Do I think western approaches to dress are better or worse than Iran's? Not necessrily, when I see the pressure on young women to appear atttractive, as deifined by men, in a male dominated meat market.

"In Iran women have to cover their hair in public according to the dress rule enforced after the Iranian Revolution in 1979. My Stealthy Freedom is an online social movement where Iranian women share photos of themselves without wearing the hijab." http://mystealthyfreedom.net/en/

Freedom is choice. Only reason she can dress like this if the men in her family allow it. If her father or husband or brother were conservative she woukd not have a choice to walk around like that.

Sorry, but I've been to Iran. These are models and NOT typical women walking around the streets of Tehran, Iran today in 2017. Maybe they dressed close to the western women's style back in the days of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, but certainly not today under the rule of the Imam. Therefore, this is pure propaganda.

Ladan Lashkari

As an Iranian I can tell you it really depends where you go in Iran, James. There are both modern neighborhoods and traditional neighborhoods in every city. I was born and raised in Tehran, and the culture gap is shockingly huge. I see women dressed like this every day, and also women with more religious covers. The point is, there are TWO sides of the same coin, and the media often only shows ONE.

Hey im not hating or anything, i mean they look good and whatever but it isnt really a steryotype when you walk past muslims wearing the whole black vail atier

Well, it kinda is. As a Muslim living in a Muslim country, I can say that wearing black all over is uncommon. In fact, you'd be surprised how westernized we are. Most of us were crop tops, bikinis, booty shorts, and what not.
