This memoir is the extraordinary story of how one woman, masih alinejad, an awe-inspiring journalist and activist from a small village in Iran, overcame enormous adversity to fight for what she truly believed and founded a major movement for women around the world with the simple removal of her hijab. It all started with a single photo, a bold statement on masih's Facebook page: a woman standing proudly, her face bare, her beautiful, curly hair blowing in the wind. Her crime: simply removing her veil, or hijab, which is compulsory for women in Iran. This is the photo that sparked a social-media liberation movement, 'my stealthy freedom'. Across Iran, women started posting pictures of their uncovered hair on masih's page in open defiance of the strict religious beliefs of their country (and often, their families) while sharing their personal stories about this powerful mode of expression. With the creation of 'my stealthy freedom' masih has gained over one million supporters around the world, and inspired Islamic women everywhere to take a stand for their basic human rights. She's been covered by the media from vogue, to the guardian, the new york times and beyond. Last year she was the recipient of the women's rights award from the Geneva summit for human rights and democracy. But behind the scenes of this movement, masih has been fighting a painful personal battle. She is a divorcee.
