Sanaz is hesitant to wear her robe, because she prefers to wear her comfy clothes.
I really wish I could wear the outfit I want... but I know I can't. I would get in too much trouble.
Sanaz worries that she might get caught by the Iranian militia for not following dress code.
I can never relax when I wear this! I'm constantly worrying about if my earrings, nail polish, and makeup can be seen!
Just keep walking. Don't look at the officers. Don't draw attention to yourself. Look invisible.
Sanaz is on her way home, and walks through the streets, avoiding the militia.
Take off your veil, go to jail!!!
As Sanaz walks on her way home, she sees offensive signs directed towards women.
I hate these posters! No woman deserves to be treated like this!
Be a good Muslim girl.
Veiling is a woman's protection.
Guard your veil, Sister.
Sanaz gets on a bus to go home, but needs to enter from the back side of the bus, and needs to sit in the back.
Iranian women often get harassed on buses, including Sanaz, by bearded men.
I hate that women always have to enter on the back of the bus... and every time I get on a bus, some man harasses me.
I wish my boyfriend was here... I miss him.
When Sanaz arrives home, she tells her brother about her bad day, and she hopes to see her boyfriend soon.
Finally, I'm home! Brother, I had the worst day today. The way Iranian women are treated is horrible!
I want my boyfriend here with me...
I know, Sanaz. It will get better. Khomeini is a terrible man for allowing this to happen to women.
