Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Iranian government plans to use facial recognition technology to record women not complying with the law of wearing hijab, reported The Guardian.

The regime continues a crackdown on women’s dressing. The secretary of Iran’s Headquarters for Promoting Virtue and Preventing Vice, Mohammad Saleh Hashemi Golpayegani, said that surveillance technology would be used in public spaces to keep an eye on women’s clothing.

After July 12, which is the national Hijab and Chastity Day, women took to the streets and social media and protested against the idea. They posted pictures and videos of themselves without the hijab.
