A women’s rights activist in Iran has said it is ‘insulting’ for Western visitors to wear the hijab in an attempt at solidarity.
Masih Alinejad, who has spearheaded Iranian women’s struggle against the head covering, said female dignitaries from Europe had left her fellow campaigners ‘on their own’ by choosing to wear the hijab when they visited Iran.
Rejecting the argument that visitors should wear the hijab out of ‘respect for the culture of Iran’, she said they were ‘sending a message that men are more equal than women’.
Ms Alinejad, the founder of the White Wednesdays movement which saw many women remove their headscarves in protest, said she was battling against a ‘discriminatory law’.

If any of these airheads had ever talked with a real Muslim woman they would realize that they do not want to wear these ugly head rags and would love to have their pretty hair showing!
