  1. I live in Iran for 27 years, 27 years I hate to wear hejab but they forced me to wear. I all those 27 years hated to wear becouse they forced me, my mother wore Chador befor revolution, at 1981 one day she said if this is Islam, I want to be ethnic and she never wore chador after ward, but in the time of Shah she pray God everyday. that was the reflect of The Islamic Republic of Iran on our people.
    We women must have our freedom to chose what to wear and what to think, we want the smallest thing that is the right of every human being.
