Dress code cannot ensure women safety by blogger Rimpi

Though we say that today’s women have all the freedom she wants and deserves, but is it completely true?

The answer is NO! Whenever a girl gets dressed in a sheer revealing dress, various heedless statements are made by people. Some even take that as an invitation for harassment. How doltish!! Those people need to rethink that her clothing reflects her confidence, appreciate it not criticize it.

Like everyone women has the freedom and legal right to wear whatever & whenever they want. People need to understand that she is just wearing an outfit of her choice and not a tattoo of “Come, Harass Me!!” And to those who still disagree to this, I just want to ask one question, haven’t any girl being raped or harassed who was fully dressed? The answer would definitely be a NO.

We need to understand that if men can roam around in vest and shorts so can the women.

The problem is not with the dress or outfit but with the sick mind within.

During a very controversial case in East Texas in 2011, a community member was heard saying that the 11-year-old girl who was raped was dressed like a 20-year-old woman with red lipstick and a very short skirt. unfortunately, this kind of comment is not new in our society as most men and even women seem to believe that a woman can be blamed if she suffers sexual assault just because she was inappropriately dressed.

However, the truth is that it is not any woman’s fault or desire to be bullied, heckled or assaulted in the streets, clubs or office because of her dressing. Women wear shorts, skirts and the little black dress and high heels because it feels sexy and powerful to do so. Just like hot men have the right to walk shirtless, it is also women’s rights to dress however they want at any time.

Clothing and fashion, in general, are a form of expression and not an invitation for all the perverts in the community to come after you. After all, self-control is a virtue and everyone should practice it.
