Priyanka Chopra extends her support to women of Iran 

Ever since 22 year old woman Mahsa Amini was killed by morality police in Iran, there have been widespread protests in the country where women are demanding their basic rights and are speaking up against the nonsensical morality police. Several celebs throughout the world have supported this moment and now actress Priyanka Chopra has also joined that list.

Sharing an artwork on her Instagram account, Priyanka wrote, "Women in Iran and around the world are standing up and raising their voices, publicly cutting their hair and many other forms of protest for Mahsa Amini, whose young life was taken away so brutally by the Iranian Morality Police for wearing her hijab ‘improperly’. The voices that speak after ages of forced silence, will rightfully burst like a volcano! And they will not and MUST not be stemmed."

She added, "I am in awe of your courage and your purpose. It is not easy to risk your life, literally, to challenge the patriarchal establishment and fight for your rights. But, you are courageous women doing this every day regardless of the cost to yourselves,” shared Priyanka. The actress further asked everyone to join the ‘critical movement’ and added, “To ensure that this movement will have a lasting effect, we must hear their call, understand the issues and then join in with our collective voices."

The actress concluded by saying, "We must also get everyone who can influence others to join as well. Numbers matter. Add your voice to this critical movement. Stay informed and be vocal, so these voices can no longer be forced to stay silent. I stand with you. Jin, jiyan , azaadi… Women, life, freedom.”
