Title: The multifaceted significance of veiling in Iran: before and after the Islamic Revolution
Author: Langlois, Melanie
Abstract: This thesis discusses the significance of veiling in Iran within its sociohistorical context. From the governmental banning of veiling prior to the Islamic Revolution to the obligatory veiling policy that followed it, state reform has been tied to women's dress reform. As political and religious leaders in Iran have defined the meaning of .the veil differently to further their own agendas, women's reactions to these definitions have varied depending on religion, socioeconomic status, and political involvement.
