From an email:

The mural is of the late Mahsa Amini and pays tribute to the Woman Life Freedom movement. Purpose of the mural is to help bring awareness to the revolution taking place in Iran and to help amplify the voices of silenced voices of the Iranian people. Weekly peaceful protests have been taking place in DC in support of this movement for the past 17 weeks.

The mural was painted by Rodrigo Pradel who is a prominent street artist. Rodrigo has another mural a couple blocks near 14th & U.
