On September 13th, Mahsa Amini was detained by the Iran’s morality police for the country’s dress code violation.
Tragically, Amani died shortly after being detained, and the people, now angry over injustice, have begun protesting.
Throughout human history, those that seek power do so by oppressing selected group of people, and have used strict dress codes as a way to fuel their campaign. In that way, people argue, that head covering is a symbol of oppression.
Shown is a painting of a Persian Poet—completed yesterday here in NYC.
My heart goes out to Amini, her family, and her people.
