A tragic loss of life has sparked a nation to demand their basic human rights following decades of strict laws.

For a month now, protests have raged on in Iran following the brutal death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini by the morality police for allegedly failing to meet the requirements of the country's strict dress code laws.

Since 1979, Iranian women have been forced to wear a hijab in accordance with the Islamic dress code. However, following Amini's death, many women have removed their hijabs in protest of the Iranian government and to honor her memory.
