You are giving wrong signals with the plunging neckline and the rising hemlines.
You should be wearing a saree for a family gathering.
You should not be wearing jeans in college.
You should not wear skirts or sleeveless to office.
You are drawing attention to your dress. You will be in trouble.
Don’t go out in revealing dresses at night.
WOMAN; no matter if we are 8 or 80, we always become victims of such moral policing. Leave my dressing sense alone. I get dresses to suit my mood ,my comfort, my choice and my pocket. I do not dress up to impress you . So please stop judging me for what I wear. I am not trying to profess here that wearing revealing clothes empower women or wearing traditional clothes make them any less virtuous.
Since time immemorial we have had restrictions on our speech, attitude, thinking, choice of food, behavior just anything and everything. Clothes are no exception. We have been told we should wear pink because we are girls, wear red because you are newly married, wear white because you are a widow worst being don’t wear colors simply because you are old. You are supposed to wear saree because you are married, You are too fat or too old to wear a dress are such common comments. For a change stop being judgemental and let me make my choice. My plunging neckline or my rising hemline is not the standard of measuring my morality. Since when did wearing a mini skirt become a bigger offense than self-righteousness?
Women have been stopped from entering a place of worship because they did not meet a certain standard of dressing. Please stop granting us rights basis of our clothes. Are we really living in the 21st century recreating human organs and converting water into fuel and still stuck with judging women for their choice of clothes?
Are we really living in a progressive nation?? Our girls today are being conditioned to believe by people in power that they are not supposed to wear clothes of their choice because they might become prey to sexual predators. People in power “Please assure us of our right to safety”.
It’s also disheartening when a woman judges another basis of her choice of clothes. Treat your son and daughter, daughter and daughter in law alike. We need to realize that we will grow and things will change only when we as a team are more forthcoming and accepting of the choices another woman makes .Give them the freedom to choose. Do not stop a girl from wearing something because it is against her culture. Culture has to evolve with changing times, it has to suit the day’s need.
So Please stop saying
She looks slutty!!
She is available!!
She is easy !!
because of her choice of clothes. If you really want to know us, come strike a conversation and look beyond our plunging necklines and rising hemlines and find out if you can match up.
