These women are totally hidden from the outside world. No men outside their family may see them - their bodies, their faces, their feelings, their body languages. The women may not and cannot be part of the society - it's very difficult to communicate without being able to see the human being in the black disguise.
Can anything be so dangerous, that's the only possibility for salvation is to hide totally? I don't understand.
If we just can see the face, it's making a big difference. Then we can see the human being behind, and she can interfere with the world.
