Men in Iran, in solidarity with a local feminist organization ‘Marivan Womens' Community’ held a protest against this kind of humiliation caused by the law enforcement authorities.

A campaign "Kurd Men for Equality" was launched on Facebook where Kurdish men posted photos of themselves in women’s clothing. The message of the campaign is:

“Being a woman is not a way for humiliation or punishment.”

Moreover, 17 members of Iran’s parliament have signed a letter sent to the Justice Ministry condemning this sentence as “humiliating to Muslim women."
