Iranian civil rights activist Saba Kord Afshari has been sentenced to 24 years in prison by Tehran's Revolutionary Court for taking off her hijab in public. The 20-year-old is part of a growing movement called White Wednesdays, where women remove their hijabs and take the risk of posting photos online.
