I was dazed to see these three American mothers in this clothing in Iran. I want to know who did really advise them to wear this kind of clothing? I have seen many western women travellers put on clothing like average educated Iranian city women who dress up only in scarf and a long dress as an outer garment in public spaces like the woman on the right in the following picture. It would be outright outrageous if Islamic republic would ask them to put on these extreme (hijab) clothing. By the way, she is Switzerland's ambassador to Iran Livia Leu Agosti.
