This young woman's name is Pardis, she is a college student who five years ago independently made the decision to start wearing a chador. Her decision was a result of countless instances of unwanted attention and after she was assaulted by a man on a motorbike.

Pardis enjoys wearing form fitted fashionable clothes which she isn’t willing to give up. In order to feel physically safe yet, personally sexy and sassy, she covers up with a Chador when she leaves the house.
