Iran’s parliament has passed a controversial bill that would increase prison terms and fines for women and girls who break its strict dress code.
Those dressed “inappropriately” face up to 10 years in jail under the bill, for which a three-year “trial” was agreed.
It still needs to be approved by the Guardian Council to become law.
The move comes a year after protests erupted over the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, who was held by morality police for an allegedly improper hijab.
Women burnt their headscarves or waved them in the air at the nationwide demonstrations against the clerical establishment, during which hundreds of people were reportedly killed in a crackdown by security forces.
