Here’s another must-see sign.
It says: ‘The veil is protection’.
The word in Persian which I have translated into ‘protection’ and which has been helpfully translated on the sign itself as ‘security’ is actually used to describe immunisations.
Basically, we women are diseases that need to be immunised with a nice big black veil that covers us up and keeps us out of sight and mind.
30 years of Islamic rule in Iran and they still need signs like this to try and keep women in their places.
