Girls college in Indian state bans shorts

India Today, Hyderabad

St Francis College for Women in Hyderabad has placed a dress code for its students. Under the new rule, students have been ordered to wear kurtis below knee length with sleeves while shorts, sleeveless or other similar dresses are banned in the campus.

As a result of the new rule, several students were not allowed to attend classes as their dresses were not as per the “guidelines”. The dictate came into effect from Aug 1.

A group of students have captured the video of dress code implementation and termed the diktat as regressive, backward and outdated.

A student, in the video, can be heard saying, “At a time when we are talking about women empowerment, such a diktat is against the entire campaign.”

In a Facebook post by former student at St Francis College, Zanobia Tumbi said that the college had announced a new dress code in the middle of the year. She also said that the student representatives were told that “a long kurti would get us good marriage proposals”.
