Concise answer

These are the answers we received from the offices of the grand maraje’ regarding your question:

The office of the Grand Ayatullah Sistani:

One cannot violate a definite ruling of Islam on which a consensus amongst all Muslims exists for such reasons and excuses and not observe the hijab and show up in front of non-mahrams without it.

The office of Ayatullah Hadavi:

Observing the hijab is obligatory under all circumstances, unless a danger threatens one’s life, wealth or dignity because of it. It should be kept in mind that observing Allah's (swt) boundaries brings about His blessing and favor, and through depending on and trusting in Him, problems are easily solved, Inshallah.
