Daily protests have rocked Iran since Mahsa Amini (a young woman) was shot to death while she was being held by Iran’s morality officers for not wearing her headscarf correctly.
Participating in the Islamic Republic is open to both men and women, who wish to live a life that is free from the rigid rules of the Islamic Republic.

Two and a quarter months ago, women sent voice notes, drawings, and writing to Saba Zavarei at the BBC. These are their diaries with their names changed for safety.
