Masih Alinejad

Masih Alinejad is an Iranian journalist and activist who advocates for personal choice in wearing the hijab. In 2014, she spearheaded a Facebook page called “My Stealthy Freedom” to protest Iran’s compulsory public hijab law for women and girls. Last year, agents of the Iranian regime attempted to kidnap Masih for her outspoken views. For her commitment to human rights, she was awarded UN Watch’s International Women’s Rights Award, and the AIB Media Excellence Award, among other honors.
