    Sharing a powerful picture depicting the intensity of the movement, Priyanka Chopra wrote, “Women in Iran and around the world are standing up and raising their voices, publicly cutting their hair and many other forms of protest for Mahsa Amini, whose young life was taken away so brutally by the Iranian Morality Police for wearing her hijab ‘improperly’. The voices that speak after ages of forced silence, will rightfully burst like a volcano! And they will not and MUST not be stemmed.” Take a look at her post.

    The White Tiger actress furthermore praised the courage of the Iranian women protestors. Priyanka Chopra added, “I am in awe of your courage and your purpose. It is not easy to risk your life, literally, to challenge the patriarchal establishment and fight for your rights. But, you are courageous women doing this every day regardless of the cost to yourselves. To ensure that this movement will have a lasting effect, we must hear their call, understand the issues and then join in with our collective voices. We must also get everyone who can influence others to join as well. Numbers matter.”

    Lastly, the actress urged more people to come forward and raise awareness around this movement. Priyanka Chopra said, “Add your voice to this critical movement. Stay informed and be vocal, so these voices can no longer be forced to stay silent. I stand with you. Jin, jiyan , azaadi… Women, life, freedom.” Many protestors expressed their gratitude to Priyanka in the comment section.
