What’s more, we will also be using the march as an opportunity to show our support for the brave women of Iran who are currently protesting the country’s the mandatory hijab laws. We wish to show solidarity with these brave women as well as encourage other groups to support the women of Iran. This is a great opportunity to bring this issue to the attention of the wider public.
