RiyadhCam: Cover-up

Following my last post about conservatism gone mad, I found this poster in a mall this morning, in the window of an Abaya shop (Abayas are those black robes that women here have to cover themselves in). Not content with covering them in black apart from their eyes, once again the eyes are pixel-masked out.

Do they really think we'd be able to recognise these women by their eyes alone? And even if we could, what's the big deal?
