Shaparak Shajarizadeh, a woman from Iran who protested against compulsory hijabs

Shaparak is a headscarf protester who has managed to escape Iran after being imprisoned.
She is currently in Canada, hoping to get refugee status
The protests against compulsory hijab in Iran began after people online shared the act of the Iranian woman Vida Movahed, who stood in the crowd on a utility box in the Enghelab Street on 27 December 2017, tied a white headscarf to a stick, and waved it to the crowd as a flag.

Her action has led to wide-spread protests by women in Iran.
