Cats in hats

This is a picture of Iranian women nomads during Reza Shah era [See larger photo with Reza Shah], prelude to the compulsory unveiling of Iranian woman (somehow it reminds me of what Americans did to the Native Indians). In January 7, 1936 Reza Shah, his wife, and their two young daughters, Shams and Ashraf, attended The Teacher's Training College in Tehran. Attending women were told not to wear veil. This day became known as the Emancipation of Women day in Iran. However the actual Compulsory Unveiling Law was passed on February 1,1936. Photo from "The Shah of Iran" (1999), Creative Publishing International, 5900 Green Oack Drive, Minnetonka, Minnesota, 55343, 1-800-936-4700

Winner: Parviz Hamrang. Sad Afarin!
