Protests against the oppression of Muslim women: Ensaf Haidar, the wife of Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, cleans her high heels with a hijab.

In Iran, the death of a young woman drives thousands of people onto the streets to demonstrate against the regime. Particularly courageous women rip off their headscarves, although they face penalties for doing so.

The protests were triggered by the fate of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the moral and religious police on September 13 while visiting family in Tehran. Her crime: she was dressed “un-Islamically”. Strands of hair appeared to be peeking out from under her hijab.
