Iranian Women Getting Frisky?

[Media Source*]

At least it seems that way to the Iranian government who is ordering a crackdown as temperatures heat up.

IRANIAN police have vowed to crack down on the way women dress this summer, when soaring temperatures typically tempt many to flout the country's strict Islamic dress code, newspapers reported.
Sartorial battles have become a regular feature of Iranian life in the summer months when police try to confront growing numbers of young women who test the limits of the law with shorter, brighter, skimpier clothing.

Iran's Islamic dress code obliges women to cover all but their face and hands and to disguise the shape of their bodies.

Violators can receive lashes, fines or imprisonment.

But it seems that many women, being the true feminists that they are, shun the "official" dress code and are eager to display their bright summer clothes in public view. Despite the threats from Tehran's Police Chief Morteza Talaei, who seems to be preparing for an aggressive stance against the "social vices," many women seem either unconcerned about a future confrontation with the fashion police.

Although dressing scantly reveals a person's inner character, threats of violence are probably not the best way to discourage such behavior. If the Iranian regime was serious about the current status of the people, they probably would be better off launching a PR campaign than a public beating session. Then again with the popularity of the regime at an all time low, a PR campaign would probably bear the same results of their current "motivational methods."
