Women covering their faces in front of strange men

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible for a girl to keep her face, hands and feet bare in front of ghair mahrams?


A: On account of the abundance of fitnah, all ulama are unanimous that a woman must keep her face covered in the presence of strangers. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/1705.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
