(Kurdish: Jin, Jiyan, Azadî, ژن، ئازادی ژیان ) or Woman, Life, Freedom is a popular political Kurdish slogan used in both the Kurdish independence and democratic confederalist movements. The slogan became a rallying cry during the protests that occurred as a response to the death of Mahsa Amini.

In Iran, cutting hair is a symbolic gesture rallying rebels against the Islamic regime. In making photographs of these women while cutting their hair, the artist wanted to show their sadness and frustration about this regime.
