Chador - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A chādor or chādar (Persian: چادر‎), also known variously in English as chadah, chad(d)ar, chader, chud(d)ah, chadur and naturalized as /tʃʌdə(ɹ)/ is an outer garment or open cloak worn by many Iranian women and female teenagers in public spaces. Chador has ancient origins, at least from Achaemenid times,[1] and today wearing this garment is one possible way in which a Muslim woman can follow the Islamic dress code known as ḥijāb. A chador is a full-body-length semicircle of fabric that is open down the front. This cloth is tossed over the woman's or girl's head, but then she holds it closed in the front. The chador has no hand openings, or any buttons, clasps, etc., but rather it is held closed by her hands or tucked under the wearer's arms.

Fadwa El Guindi, in her book on the history of hijab, locates the origin of the Persian custom in ancient Mesopotamia, where respectable women veiled, and servants and prostitutes were forbidden to do so. The veil marked class status, and this dress code was regulated by sumptuary laws.

Achaemenid Iranian women in art were mostly veiled,[1] and the first represent­ation of chador is found on Ergili sculptures and the "Satrap sarcophagus" from Persian Anatolia.[1] The earliest written record of chador can be found in Pahlavi scripts from 6th century, as a female head dress worn by Zoroas­trian women.[2]

yasmin khadembashi's insight:
after the revolution that defeated shah, women had the wear black long head pieced dresses, under the strict authority of the government (ayatollah khomeini)
