This is a tribute to Mahsa Amini. On 16 September 2022, the 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, died in a hospital in Tehran, Iran, under suspicious circumstances. The religious morality police of Iran's government, arrested Amini for allegedly not wearing the hijab in accordance with government standards. The Law Enforcement Command of the Islamic Republic of Iran stated that she had a heart attack at a police station, collapsed, and fell into a coma before being transferred to a hospital. However, eyewitnesses, including women who were detained with Amini, reported that she was severely beaten and that she died as a result of police brutality.

Amini's death resulted in a series of protests. Some female demonstrators removed their hijab or publicly cut their hair as acts of protest. Iran Human Rights reported that by the beginning of November 2022 at least 304 people had been killed by security forces attacking protests across the country. Amnesty International reported that Iranian security forces had, in some cases, fired into groups with live ammunition and had in other cases killed protesters by beating them with batons.

As this video is released, these protests, perhaps the most significant women's revolution in history, are ongoing and escalating. After initial indifference news outlets in The West are starting to pay attention, and momentum is growing.
