I visited Iran in 2000 with my oldest friend and her partner, an Iranian who had walked out of Iran through Turkey in 1979. He told me that women who refused to wear the hijab then had it forcibly pinned to their heads with drawing pins. The young women and girls protesting in Iran now are showing courage that should shame the army into action. They need the army; things will only change permanently if the military supports the protests.
