PARIS: On Wednesday, one of Iran’s best-known actors posted a picture of herself without the headscarf, which is required for women in the Islamic republic.

Since Mahsa Amini’s death a few weeks ago, protests have been going on all over the country for weeks.

Taraneh Alidoosti’s action seems to be an act of defiance.

The Kurdish Iranian woman, who was 22 years old, died in the middle of September. She had been arrested by Tehran’s morality police for breaking the country’s strict dress rules for women.
Alidoosti is one of the best-known actors still in Iran, and she has spoken out in support of the protest movement.

She posted the picture of herself with her head uncovered on her official Instagram account.

Alidoosti is a regular star in Asghar Farhadi’s movies, like “The Salesman,” which won the 2017 Oscar for best foreign language film.
A few days ago, the actor said on Instagram that she would stay in her home country

“at any cost.” She said she would stop working and instead help the families of those who had been killed or arrested in the protest crackdown.
The 38-year-old man said,

“I am the one who lives here, and I have no plans to leave.” He denied having a foreign passport or home.

“I’ll stay, and I won’t work. I will support the families of those who are in jail or who have been killed. “I will speak up for them,” she said.

“I’ll fight for where I live

. I will do whatever it takes to stand up for my rights, and most importantly, I believe in what we are building together today,

” she said.
Alidoosti has been a big deal in Iranian movies since she was a teenager.

She was also in “Leila’s Brothers,” a well-reviewed film by director Saeed Roustayi that was shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

She is known for standing up for women’s rights and other human rights in Iran in a direct way.
Even before the protests that began after Amini’s death, people in the Iranian film industry were under a lot of pressure.

Mohammad Rasoulof and Jafar Panahi, two directors who have won awards, are still in jail after being arrested earlier this year.

When big protests happened in November 2019, Alidoosti said that Iranians were not citizens but “millions of captives.”
