Journalist and activist Masih Alinejad is the voice for millions of Iranian women rebelling against the forced use of the hijab. Leading one the largest acts of civil disobedience in today’s Iran, Masih uses social media and her freedom in exile to amplify the protest in her home country. The regime tightens its grip to regain control, and Masih’s courage is tested when violence and oppression threaten her own family members.
