On The End of the 00s: A Party In Iran, by Kaila Hale-Stern

Burqas are not worn in Iran! Burqas are worn in Afghanistan and some parts of Pakistan, and cover the entire face and body.

Iranian law dictates that women wear the hijab - which can be just a scarf over your head and an overcoat (which are often very tight and actually pretty sexy among urban women!)

Religious Iranians wear the chador, which is the full covering, but they do not cover their faces.
