Sporadic protests started as soon as the hijab was made mandatory, but the movement got its real wind in 2014. Actually, Iranian political journalist Masih Alinejad posted a photo of himself on Facebook while walking in the streets of London. Hundreds of Iranian women commented on Alinejad’s photo.

Iranian women also started sending them their photos without hijab and thus a movement was born. Alinejad now lives in America.
