Forced to wear a hijab, she burns it to embrace freedom in the Muslim world

This brave Ex-Muslim woman took to the social network to protest against the Islamic oppression of women in Iran.
She wrote on a Twitter post:
“#NoHijabDay Yes, I was forced to wear the #Hijab, not only by my family, but also by my school. We had to wear it, or else we get lower grades. Now no more. It feels so liberating. Hijab is not a symbol of liberation, It is the symbol of oppression.”
As promised, I did it on my birthday, it feels so liberating to burn the #hijab. And I am doing that in solidarity to #Iranian women who are protesting against the madatory hijab and for all the forced girls. #nohijabday we are not candies or diamonds to be covered. We’re humans.”

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
