In recent times there has been an increased presence of the morality police in big cities such as Tehran. Where  the morality police are ordered to judge the modesty of women, fo example they check if women are wearing their hijab correctly or if they have too much makeup on.

The movement was ignited by My Stealthy Freedom, a Facebook page, which is notorious for posting  images of Iranian women in public not wearing a head covering.
