Feminine Face of Poverty in Iran

This video clip has been posted on the internet from Iran:

Look. Behind me is a woman covered up in veil (chador); she’s wearing a mask to prevent being identified. She is looking through the garbage and trash containers in this late hour of night. She’s looking to find and collect something that she might need to stay alive. I don’t know but such people seem to be really honorable. When a woman wraps up herself in a chador and does not want to be recognized and looks through the garbage, it means that she’s been left no other way. There is no organization and no agency in our country to support them and they have to live in this way.

Is this really what the situation in our country is? Is this the motto in this country about chastity and veil and is this the way they support women?
