An Iranian woman disguised herself as a man in order to sneak into a football stadium in Tehran. Although there is no official ban on women attending sporting events in Iran, they are often refused entry. The unidentified 22-year-old woman wanted to watch her favorite football team, Persepolis FC, play a match. The woman recorded her trip to the stadium and through a series of videos explained how she layered five t-shirts and five pairs of trousers to hide her figure and covered her face with paint to protect her identity. Nik Zecevic and Joya Mia Italiano discuss the videos and the response from the Iranian community on the Lip News.
