On April 15, police paraded a convicted criminal through the city of Marivan dressed in traditional Kurdish women’s clothing.
The campaign "Kurd Men for Equality" launched on Facebook in protest of this punishment.
The campaign's tagline reads: "Being a woman is not a way for humiliation or punishment."
A few women have even posted photos of themselves dressed as men.
17 members of Iran’s parliament have signed a letter sent to the Justice Ministry condemning this sentence as “humiliating to Muslim women."
Christopher Schwartz, an american journalist, joined the campaign:
No public apology has been made by authorities and security forces in Iran have strongly criticized the campaign.
