The Iranian HIJAB issue... controversial story indeed. 
Fact: yes, ladies must wear it in all public places. As soon as you land, you see all female travelers unpacking their carry on and putting up their headscarves before entering the country. 
The word ”hijab” means both the headscarf, and the Islamic modest style of dresscode in general. 
In Iran, in the time of “westernized” Reza Shah (after 1936) a decree officially banned all types of veils (hijab, chador, abaya, etc.) for ladies. Surprisingly (now) fashion photos depicting ladies in mini skirts and revealing dresses were also common - but not everybody felt okay with the new liberal dress-code. 
After the Islamic Revolution (1979) there was a 180 degree turn: the hijab become compulsory - and yet again, not everybody felt okey with the new conservative enforced approach. 
Now the hijab is mandatory for all women, even for non Muslims and non-citizens. 
Although it is obligatory, Iranian ladies kind of tricked the system, and started to use their hijabs as trendy accessories. While keeping the “modesty regulations”, most of them dress in an extremely fashionable and colorful way. ☺️
📍 Rozeh Mohamadieh Mosque, Yazd
