Elnaaz Norouzi, the Iranian actor, also known for her work in the Netflix series Sacred Games, has joined the protest against Iran’s “morality police” by asserting their right to wear anything they want.
Norouzi, on her Instagram posted a video, joining the protest, where she is stripping several layers of clothes to make a point about what she wants to wear and no one can stop her.
“Every woman, anywhere in the world, regardless of where she is from, should have the right to wear whatever she desires and when or wherever she desires to wear it. No man nor any other woman has the right to judge her or ask her to dress otherwise,” Norouzi wrote in the Instagram post.
“Everyone has different views and beliefs and they have to be respected. Democracy means the power to decide…Every Woman should have the power to decide over her own body. I am not promoting nudity, I am promoting freedom of choice,” she wrote.

The death of Mahsa Amini has sparked waves of angry women activists’ protests that have rocked Iran over the past few weeks. The 22-year-old Kurdish woman was visiting Tehran when the morality police detained her. It is alleged that she passed away on September 16 while she was in police custody.
Police stated that the woman was detained because her headscarf was improperly worn, but a wave of protests broke out after she died while in their custody. Morality police were criticized for mistreating the young woman, but they later claimed that she died of a heart attack after being taken to the hospital in a rush.
Following this, hundreds of women in Iran hit the streets and burnt their hijab as mark of protest. Many others publicly cut their hairs as a mark of protest.
