Two FB pages about Iranian women and their headscarves

All the rage this week on Facebook is the page “Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian Women,” which celebrates the quiet acts of rebellion of Iranian women removing their headscarves in public. Stealthy Freedoms has garnered 274,000 “likes.”

Predictably, as explained in this Bloomberg article “Iranian Conservatives Hit Back at Facebook Campaign on Headscarves,” Iranian conservatives counterposted with their own Facebook page, Real Freedom of Iranian Women, which celebrates the virtues of hijab and the chador. It has received 5,000 “likes.” So far.
