Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. If you plan on visiting Qatar say for the 2022 World Cup, there are some rules you should know. Dress should be modest and not too revealing. In keeping with this regulation, foreign visitors are encouraged to keep what upper part of their body covered?

Answer: Shoulders

Qatar and its capital city Doha are amongst the most liberal of Muslim countries in terms of the dress code for foreigners. Qatar regulations are generic and prohibit only wearing clothing by foreigners or citizens that are too revealing or indecent. What constitutes improper or overly revealing clothing is reserved for nudity or exposure of genitalia.

However, foreigners are advised to respect the conservative nature of Qatar society and to dress modestly. As such both men and women are encouraged to wear sleeves and avoid sleeveless tops that expose the shoulders. Short-sleeves are perfectly acceptable as are T-shirts that expose the neck.

While hats are recommended to reduce overexposure to the sun during the day, it is not a cultural requirement to cover your head.
2. For some reason, you are moving to North Korea. Of all things, if you are a man your hairstyle needs to reflect the "socialist lifestyle" correctly. As discussed in a 2004-2005 North Korean television series, wearing your hair in what fashion was described as "untidy" and failing to reflect a proper attitude?

Answer: Long hair

Government restriction and limitations on almost all aspect of the citizenry's personal life is a consistent theme in North Korea. However in 2004-2005 the matter of men's hair length took center stage as a television series was aired on North Korea's state-run television. The series of programs explained the importance of proper grooming and that it was important in repelling attempts by the enemies of North Korean to insinuate corrupt capitalist ideas and lifestyle by only using approved hairstyles. A second what not to wear series "outed" citizens with unapproved hair styles.

One of my favorite quotes from the hair length campaign, as related by the BBC, is that "[long hair] consumes a great deal of nutrition and could thus rob the brain of energy". All things considered, I would trade my now fully "energized" head for the return of the hair that has departed over the years.
3. Pack your bags we are going to Russia. However, if you bring your pre-teen or teenager, you might want to check their choice of clothes. What type of depressingly popular style of dress, that is closely associated with a music trend, was nearly banned in Russia in 2011 as a threat to national stability?

Answer: Emo

Emo or emotional hardcore originally referred to a post-punk style of rock music that combines hard rock with angst-ridden depressed lyrics. Fans of "emo" music developed a distinctive dress style that includes wearing tight jeans pants, wool scarves, excessive black eye make-up, t-shirts and hair styles with multi-toned bangs that cover most of the face. Emo fans are also stereotyped as teens that are overly sensitive, introverted and often depressed.

In the 2000s, Emo became fashionable amongst Russian teens. The subculture was blamed for a rise in teen suicide. In 2010, the Russian Duma considered a law that would prohibit Emo style clothing and hair at schools and government buildings. The legislature called emo a "dangerous teen trend" and said it promoted anti-social behavior. While the proposed law received widespread coverage, it was never adopted.
4. The streets of Carmel California and the Acropolis in Athens Greece have historically frowned on the wearing of what fashionable female attire?

Answer: High heels

Since 1963, Carmel California has had a local ordinance prohibiting anyone from wearing heals longer than two inches unless they have received a permit from the City. The permit law is an attempt to limit liability from slip and fall accidents along Carmel's many irregularly paved streets. While the regulation is rarely enforced, visitors are encouraged, and many do, to obtain the free permit.

Tourists are also banned from wearing high heeled shoes when visiting parts of the famed Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The Greek government passed the ordinance to ban the heels and chewing gum from the Acropolis' Herod Atticus Theatre to prevent further damage and erosion to the areas ancient stone streets.
5. You are off to Malaysia. Please be aware that since 2007 due to a connection with a coalition of anti-government reform groups wearing what type of fashion is considered suspect?

Answer: Yellow T-Shirts

It pays to know about local political and social issues before you travel. Bersih, which means clean in Malay, is a coalition of social reform groups. Bersih has staged several protests calling for the government to "clean" up the election process and institute procedures fair to all political parties. Beginning with the first Bersih protest in 2007, marchers have worn yellow T-shirts as a sign of solidarity.

The color has become associated with the movement. During the marches clashes between protestors and police have resulted in thousands of arrests and numerous incidents of violence.

As might be expected the Malaysian government is not too fond of the protests and has attempted to stop the marches, including arresting people wearing yellow T-shirts that appear to support the protests.
6. A trip to the mysterious Asian country of Bhutan would be a rare and beautiful experience. While tourists are permitted to wear any respectful style of clothes, when entering government offices Bhutanese citizens must adhere to a strict dress code that prohibits what fashion style?

Answer: Suit

For Bhutanese men, the national dress is the "gho", a knee-length robe, tied at the waist with a cloth belt called a "kera". Women wear a "kira", a type of ankle-length dress.Women also wear a kera at the waist and two broaches on their shoulders named "komas".

The gho and kira resemble the more well-known Japanese kimono robe. Bhutanese government employees are legally required to wear traditional clothing, and all citizens are required to wear traditional clothing when entering government buildings. Tourists may wear Bhutanese clothes, but it is not a requirement. Be advised that when entering a temple or government office tourists should not wear hats, shorts or t-shirts.
7. Moving to Iran? Then you need to be aware of the complex and frequently changing list of clothing and grooming requirements. A set of rules published in 2015 sought to protect men from appearing "homosexual" or engaging in "devil worship". What grooming profession was the subject of Iran's scrutiny?

Answer: Barbers

Iran has been carefully monitoring the trends in men's hair fashion since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. While Iran, like most Islamic countries, stresses the need to avoid obscene clothing, the limitations on "approved" hair style is more about social control than religious doctrine.

In 2010, Iran banned barbers from providing men with mullet and ponytail hair cuts and prohibited the use of hair gels. Again in 2015, Iran issued revised regulations that included spiked hair under the list of subversive hair styles deemed to promote "homosexuality" or were "signs of devil worship".

While civil authorities have been loath to make arrests or issue citations for haircut violations, religious police, and private militias have routinely roamed shopping areas and enforce the codes.
8. France has been at the forefront of fashion diversity for centuries. However, beginning in 2010 clothing that intentionally covers the face have been banned in public. The ban specifically affects the wearing of which female religious based article of clothing?

Answer: Niqab

The niqab is a headpiece and veil that covers the face including the ears and the hair. The design of this veil provides an opening for the eyes for vision. Burqa's are a similar Islamic women's garment that covers not only the face but body as well, with only the hands and eyes left unclothed. In 2010, the French government passed laws making the wearing of any garment that completely obscures a person's face illegal. The law was enacted both as a means to allow for easier identification to support national security and to foster social interaction by facial recognition. The ban applies to any mask, helmet or covering, but has most significantly affected Muslim women. In 2014, despite a challenge from religious groups, the European Court of Human Rights upheld the law as not violating French civil rights.

Most Western religions have some head and face covering. In Orthodox Judaism, women are expected to wear a head scarf called the tichel. Catholic nuns traditionally wear a black veil on their head as part of their habit to signify their status as a bride of Christ. In the Greek Orthodox religion priests and nuns wear a kalymafki that is a stiffened headdress that covers the head and flows down the sides of the ears.
9. It is 2015 and you're travelling in parts of Sudan. Pack your wardrobe carefully and recognize the significance of local laws regarding clothing. Women, in particular, face jail fines or even up to forty lashes for wearing what otherwise common type of clothing?

Answer: Pants

There are a number of places where women are discouraged from wearing trousers or pants. However, few places enforce the prohibition as aggressively as the Sudan. Since 1991, Sudanese law permits the issuance of fines, jail sentences or public lashing for women convicted of wearing pants.

The pants ban is based on an interpretation of Islamic or Sharia law that wearing pants is obscene and sexually enticing. The law, however, is not limited to Muslims, as a case in 2015 showed where ten female members of the Christian Evangelical Baptist Church were arrested for wearing pants.
10. In many countries wearing military uniforms when not on active service can, at the very least, be offensive and is often illegal. When traveling in the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago they have also made it a violation of law to wear what generic military-related of clothing?

Answer: Camouflage

Since the early 1960s, it has been illegal for citizens or tourists to the beautiful Caribbean island nation of Trinidad & Tobago to wear camouflage clothing. The camouflage pattern closely resembles the uniform of the Trinidadian army. The law follows similar sanctions against wearing of military uniforms except by members of the armed forces.

Interestingly, it is not illegal to sell locally made goods in a camouflage pattern only to wear the clothing on the streets. Many stores located throughout Trinidad sell camouflage t-shirts or camo style pants.

While the law allows for fines of up to four hundred dollars, tourists are instead asked to remove the clothing. Such was the case for one mother of a tenth-month-old, who was detained until she removed the child's camouflage and teddy bear patterned pants.
