Dress code policing - why we don't need

Everybody cares for what women should wear in India.
Ban t-shirts, ban jeans.. Kind of comments still echoing in the voices of narrow minded celebrities and politicians.

  • Education institutions in India have set of dress codes. 
  • Educational institutions have Unwritten dress codes in smaller towns and villages. 

Educational institutions in western countries have dress code like
 "Top's bottom should touch the top of the bottom".
No skin tight dresses.

Popular dress code policing in recent history.
  • In 1907 Australian swimmer Annette Kellerman got arrested for wearing a swim suit. We call it a tight top and leggings now. Even Arab Countries would accept that today. 
  • In 1920's US women got penalized for wearing short bathing suits. According to Washington bathing beach law, bathing suit must not be over 6 inch from knee. The awkward part is that the beach police officers measure each  women with a measuring tape. 

Today we moved on from there.
If we do the dress code policing today, that will be broken sooner or later.

  • Dress code change time to time. 
  • We are not like the then people, we are OK with bikini beaches.

There is a strange relationship between women's skirt and a country's economy.
The shorter a woman's skirt is higher in economy and the longer the skirt is lower in economy.

Every individual has a different mindset and comfort level.

When I say don't do this?
You ask, why not?.
It's simple psychology.
The point is freedom.

We don't want dress code policing,
what we want is dignity in our minds.
