On Wednesday, Hollywood actress and a special envoy for the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), Angelina Jolie, voiced her respect for Iranian women through uploads on her Instagram page relating to the demonstration.

Jolie’s statement comes after the women took to the streets over the death of Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the Iranian morality police.

Amini’s case has been noticed by the world and condemned by Iranian celebrities, athletes, and other public figures.

“Women don’t need their morals policed, their minds re-educated, or their bodies controlled. They need the freedom to live and breathe without violence or threats. To the women of Iran, we see you #WomanLifeFreedom #MahsaAmini,” read one of Jolie’s posts.

The protests began on Saturday, September 17, during Amini’s funeral in the Kurdish region and are persisting in most parts of the country, sparking conflicts as the security forces sought to repress the demonstrations.

Mahsa fell into a coma briefly after collapsing at a detention center before she was pronounced dead on Friday, September 16.

Hollywood actress and UNICEF ambassador Priyanka Chopra & British model-turned-actress Amy Louise Jackson also expressed their support for the women of Iran.
