Journalist and activist Masih Alinejad is the voice of millions of Iranian women rebelling on social media against the hijab forced upon them. Leading one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in today’s Iran, Masih uses 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.
