I think there are some cosmetic changes that are taking place, but these changes are not fundamental. If you look at government posts, 137 women were registered to run in Iran's presidential election. The Guardian Council, which screens loyalty to the regime, rejected all of them. Iran has never allowed any woman to serve on the 88-member Assembly of Experts of the Leadership, and that's the body that's tasked with appointing Iran's supreme leader.
Even the institutional changes, the political changes, have been cosmetic. The real power centres in Iran are barred to women. In terms of how this reflects on the ground, I think you've seen the frustration from Iranian women who recognize that Hassan Rouhani has not delivered on these promises, again, despite the rhetoric from his election in 2013. And it is fuelling exactly the anger you're seeing in these hijab protests as Iranian women are really risking their lives standing up against the regime and calling for greater freedoms.
