ALBAWABA - A video of an Iranian woman completely removing and throwing her hijab in Iran circulated on the internet. 

According to reports, the woman was kicked out of the event at the Iranian council of engineering for not wearing a full veil. 

On her way out, the Iranian woman "angrily" throw her hijab on the floor before leaving the building. Some of the crowds were heard clapping as support for the woman's reaction.

Since September, massive protests have been taking place in Iran after the death of activist Mahsa Amini, three days after her arrest by the country's morality police for wearing an "improper hijab."

Women inside and outside Iran have been demonstrating against the dress code and the morality police by burning their hijabs and cutting their hair. "زن، زندگی، آزادی - women, life, freedom" became the main slogan of the Iranian protests.

Protesters also chanted slogans against the Iranian government and the Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei.
