Sahar Khodayari took her own life by setting herself on fire after she was arrested and taken to court for trying to attend a football match in Iran.
Sahar just wanted to watch her favorite team play in a stadium. Instead, she was arrested and fearing jail time, set herself on fire, later dying from her burns. She, like so many Iranian woman, was simply protesting discrimination. Be the voice of Iran's #bluegirl! pic.twitter.com/qzL5ssi3Bl
