Masih Alinejad:

This picture is a clear indication of the fact that women in Iran don’t enjoy security.

But the picture of this Iranian woman is also a symbol of bravery for this woman fearlessly stood up against her attackers.  

Her name is Marziyeh Ebrahimi. She was in the news when we became the victim of an acid attack in Esfahan. Although several years have elapsed ever since, her attackers have yet to be arrested. Instead, the government has imprisoned those demonstrating against acid attacks.
