Women are rarely allowed to attend soccer games in Iran.
But that didn't stop them.
A group of women put on beards and wigs and snuck into the stadium. For a few of them, this wasn't their first time sneaking into a male dominated sports arena.
"Our goal is to keep going until they allow all women to go."
When men at the game realized that a few of the attendees were women, instead of getting angry, they were impressed.
"They came over and took selfies with us, praising us for going. Another interesting thing is all of those who knew we were women did not shout anything rude throughout the match."
Their bravery went viral and has inspired thousands.
They are brave, they are hope.— Milorous (@Milorous) April 28, 2018
When your love of football takes over your fear of getting caught. Since 1979 women in #Iran have not been allowed to enter sports stadiums to watch matches. Today my heroes are these women from yesterday’s champions league match in #Tehran— Samira Mohyeddin سمیرا (@SMohyeddin) April 28, 2018
