Iranian activist and journalist, Masih Alinejad, has slammed Western women for donning Islamic headscarves, calling them a symbol of inequality and discrimination.

 

The women’s rights campaigner also went on to say, portraying the hijab as a cultural symbol is an insult to nations like Iran where women have no choice but to cover their heads.

“The female politicians who visit Iran, the tourists, the athletes, the actresses, all of them – when they go to my beautiful country, they say, ‘This is a cultural issue. We wear it out of respect to the culture of Iran.’ Let me be clear with you, calling a discriminatory law part of our culture – this is an insult to a nation.”
