The demonstrations that started on 17 September 2022 in Sakkız, his hometown after Emini’s death, spread throughout the country and turned into anti-government protests.
Nearly 500 demonstrators were killed during the months-long events, and more than a hundred security personnel lost their lives.
Thousands of people protesting the death of Mahsa Emini and opposing the mandatory dress code were detained in the country.
Despite the end of the mass demonstrations, women in many parts of Iran continue their protest by not covering their heads in public places, shopping malls, cafes, banks, schools and streets.
