Iranians increasingly reluctant to comply with strict hijab rules
When Iran's secular administration was overthrown in 1979, the Islamic government made it compulsory for women in the country to wear the hijab.
Now, 35 years on, women are increasingly reluctant to comply with government-imposed dress codes.
Many have taken to wearing headscarves made from western-style, fashionable fabrics which are not approved by the government.
