Their support of hijab protesters are part of a wider movement in Iran resisting the Islamic law, which dictates that women must cover their hair in public.
Some have posted hijab-less photos on a Facebook page founded by exiled journalist Masih Alinejad, whose call for women to wear white scarves and protest the hijab on Wednesdays appears to have been behind Movahedi's protest.

The identity of the second woman has not been revealed, but the New York Times'Tehran correspondent, Thomas Erdbrink, reported that she had been arrested.
Referring to the avenue where the woman took off her headscarf, Sotoudeh wrote: "The girl of the Enghelab Avenue has been released".
