Forced Hijab


Forced Hijab, by Nazgol Golmuradi, Iran, 2019

‘The woman in the painting is covered by the full veil. The woman is falling but the birds come to help her. In my country, the hijab is compulsory and women who do not comply face severe punishment. The woman is depressed and feels dead inside. The birds represent God. God is always there and helps everyone’
