Iran and the new dress code
We live in the 21st century and take basic rights like dressing the way we please for granted. Read today’s Reuters? Women in Iran have been banned from wearing hats without veils and boots if the pants worn with them are not ankle length. If the pants are tucked in the boots or show the female “shape” (what?!!), then that is in contradiction with the Islamic Dress Code. Who has written this dress code, I beg to know… This regressive and repressive attitude towards the sex formerly known as “fairer/gentler” is absurd. Why doesn’t the moral-religious brigade take up arms against drug peddlers and terrorists instead of wasting everyone else’s time?
