WHAT DOES CHADOR MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Chador

A chādor or chādar, also known variously in English as chadah, chadar, chader, chudah, chadur and naturalized as /tʃʌdə/ is an outer garment or open cloak worn by many Iranian women and female teenagers in public spaces. Chador has ancient origins, at least from Achaemenid times. A chador is a full-body-length semicircle of fabric that is open down the front. This cloth is tossed over the woman's or girl's head, but then she holds it closed in the front. The chador has no hand openings, or any buttons, clasps, etc., but rather it is held closed by her hands or tucked under the wearer's arms.
