The death toll of Iranian women continues to rise, amid protests sparked by the death of Masha Amini, a young woman arrested for having her veil “misplaced” on her head and leaving part of her hair to the side. view. And the pain, indignation and helplessness prompted French actresses to join the claims by cutting their hair and the measure was soon replicated in our country, since Juana Viale and Laura Novoa also did it.
“The death of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old Iranian woman arrested by the so-called ‘morality police’ for wearing her veil in an ‘inappropriate’ way, fills us with indignation, anger and sadness. This is our gesture of struggle”, Novoa wrote on his Instagram profile along with a video in which you can see how he takes his hair and cuts a lock of hair. And she added: “I was alone at home, it was early in the morning and I can’t wait for someone to ask me for the video and edit it with other actresses. I started alone feeling that this is how we sometimes feel alone and unprotected women in the face of so much silence and injustice.”
While in dialogue with Noticias Argentinas, he revealed that he was inspired by his French and Spanish colleagues. “What happened to this 22-year-old girl and all the news gave me so much indignation, sadness and disgust, that I needed to do it because there was no movement in Argentina that was doing it,” she said.
“I did it at 2 in the morning, when I couldn’t talk to anyone. I hung up and went to sleep. I was surprised by the repercussions, I hope many people join, as Juana Viale did,” he added in reference to the granddaughter of Mirtha Legrand, who with scissors in hand, cut a lock of hair with the claim: “For freedom!”.
