A burqa (Urdu: بُرقع‎) (Arabic pronunciation: [ˈbʊrqʊʕ, ˈbʊrqɑʕ]a (also transliterated burkha, bourkha, burka or burqu’ from Arabic: برقع‎‎ burquʻ or burqaʻ), also known as chadri or paranja in Central Asia) is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover their bodies when in public.

The face-veiling portion is usually a rectangular piece of semi-transparent cloth with its top edge attached to a portion of the head-scarf so that the veil hangs down covering the face and can be turned up if the woman face. In other styles, the niqāb of the veil is attached by one side, and covers the face only below the eyes, allowing the eyes to be seen…. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burqa

SO …. That Fish-Net Lady is a striking challenge to this type of scene … and perhaps  a proclamation in favour of female liberation  

wifely togetherness
