A teenager was arrested last week in Iran for posting videos of herself dancing on social media. Maedeh Hojabri had posted several videos to her popular Instagram account of her dancing in her bedroom to Iranian and Western music.

Hojabri’s account has been blocked but her videos have spread to other accounts and been reposted by activists protesting her detention. Her arrest has also led to an outcry of support from ordinary Iranians who have posted videos of themselves dancing online in solidarity.
