Videos Show Violent Assaults on Iranian Women over Dress Code (Radio Free Europe-Radio Liberty)
Videos shared on social media recently have demonstrated “shocking levels of abuse” that women in Iran face from morality police and pro-government “thugs” seeking to enforce the country’s strict dress code, Amnesty International said on March 12.
Women in Iran were “routinely stopped in the street at random by morality police.” They are also physically assaulted, including by being “slapped in the face, beaten with batons, handcuffed, and bundled into police vans.”
