Iran was rocked by its largest ever anti-regime movement after the death in police custody one year ago of a young woman who was arrested after wearing her hijab “inappropriately”.

In protests in the capital Tehran and across the country, various sectors of society took to the streets to denounce the death of Mahsa Amini on September 16 last year, and against decades of hardline rule under the country’s clerical leadership.
