Solidarity for women in Iran: Juliette Binoche and Co. cut off their hair

More than 50 French actresses and other celebrities have cut their hair in solidarity with the women currently demonstrating against repression in Iran. A video is circulating on social media in which actress Juliette Binoche (58) can be seen right at the beginning. "For freedom," she says to the camera before cutting off almost half of her hair with scissors.

Shortly after, the actresses Marion Cotillard (47), Isabelle Adjani (67), Charlotte Gainsbourg (51) and Isabelle Huppert (69), who also grab the scissors, follow. The singers Jane Birkin (75) and Angèle (26) also sacrifice a strand of hair.

Meanwhile, a Persian version of the resistance song "Bella Ciao" by singer Gandom can be heard in the background. According to the credits, the action was launched by a French lawyer.

The video also tells the story of Mahsa Amini (2000-2022) in several small text passages, who was arrested by the moral police in Tehran on September 13 because her hijab did not completely cover her hair. She died in police custody three days later - what exactly happened is unclear. According to activists, the police are said to have used force. She was only 22 years old.

Only a little later, protests started on the streets of Iran, for which more and more stars are campaigning. For example, Angelina Jolie (47) expressed her respect for the "brave, defiant, fearless women of Iran" in an Instagram post at the end of September. She shared several photos of the demonstrations.
