It is both. Many, maybe most, Iranian women resent having to wear a hijab and many in urban areas will push the rules a bit to allow some hair to flow out. Some also wear clothes that are tighter than their silly rules allow. There is a lot of resentment over these religious rules. The majority of Iranians have grown up after the fall of the Shah and feel no affinity for their government.
