Masih Alinejad introduced a movement working towards providing women with the right to choose if they want to wear the head scarf or not. She did so through a facebook page called ‘My Stealthy Freedom’. In solidarity with the movement, she encourages women to share pictures and videos without headscarves to overthrow the authority given to the police to monitor women’s clothing unnecessarily.

#چهارشنبه_های_بدون_اجبار #چهارشنبه_های_سفید جمعی از زنان داخل ایران به همراه مردان تصمیم گرفته اند چهارشنبه های هر هفته را به اعتراض علیه حجاب اجباری اختصاص دهند، در خیابان، اداره، دانشگاه، محل کار، یا هر جایی که حضورمان تا کنون سانسور شده، با نماد هایی نظیر شال و سفید و دستبند سفید به اجبار و زور اعتراض می کنیم. چهارشنبه های بدون اجبار از تمام زنان با حجاب و نیز مردانی که حجاب اجباری را توهین به شعور انسانی می دانند، دعوت می کند به هر شیوه مسالمت آمیزی که خودشان صلاح می دانند پیام و صدای شان را ثبت كنند.. خانمي نوشته من فردا در يكي از خيابان هاي شهرم حرف هام رو مي گم و دو تا از دوستانم هم با دستبند سفيد حامي هستند. داشتن چنين همراهاني نعمته. #WhiteWednesdays

After the reelection of Hassan Rouhani, women took to the streets to remind the authorities about the unfair imposition of the dress code. During that protest women took their headscarves off on the streets.

After that, the latest initiative taken by Masih Alinejad, allows Iranian women to settle on a middle ground in their constant struggle between ones who want to cover their hair and one’s who don’t.

The campaign called White Wednesdays or “Wednesday without compulsion” invites men and women to wear white scarves, bracelets, to show their protest against the compulsory dress code.

This campaign is aiming to help all women. Be it ones who wear the veil as a choice and ones who’re forced into it. They’re main concern is that no matter what women choose to do their shouldn’t be any obligation to do so.

This campaign is addressed to women who willingly wear the veil, but who remain opposed to the idea of imposing it on others. Many veiled women in Iran also find the compulsory imposition of the veil to be an insult

The campaign is seen as a safe and legal way to protest without causing people with different view any harm.
