Iranian woman 'sentenced to 20 years in prison' for removing headscarf in protest

In Iran, not wearing a hijab means facing the threat of punishment, with The Independent UK revealing that women showing their hair in public face penalties ranging from a $25 (£19) fine to prison time.

No freedom. No choice.
