It’s dangerous to keep diaries or photos of protests on your phone in Iran. Women there risk imprisonment if the police find any evidence that links them to the movement against the Islamic Republic.

Since Mahsa Amini was killed while being detained by Iran’s morality police for not wearing her headscarf correctly, the country has been rocked by daily protests from women and men who want a life free from the strict rules of the Islamic Republic.

We know Mahsa Amini’s story, but BBC 100 Women has taken a look at the side of life we don’t see, as women continue to protest. Over two and a half months, women have been sharing their thoughts and feelings through voice notes, writing and drawings with the BBC’s Saba Zavarei as they challenge decades of discrimination, oppression and corruption.

This is their story. Their names have been changed for their safety.

Directed by Kate Forbes, producer Kawoon Kamoosh, editor Paul Organe, animation by Manuella
