Iranians living in Ireland have joined the women-led uprising happening around the world to protest against the death of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old woman who was arrested by ‘morality police’ and died in custody three days later.

Since then women in Iran have been cutting their hair in public in a courageous challenge to the country's strict morality laws, risking imprisonment in doing so, with dozens losing their lives amid a state crackdown on the demonstrations.
