Elections Epicentre: Trolled Over 'Dress Code'

May 29, 2019 09:05 PM IST India India

In the 17th Lok Sabha - 14% or 76 MPs are women - this is the highest number of female representatives in the Lok Sabha in the history of the countrys. But while there is a favourable change with more women entering and winning in politics - one thing that has not changed is sexism - Look at these visuals on your screen - these are 2 first time MPs - Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan of the Trinamool Congress - visiting Parliament - dressed how they would normally - yet this is now a source of outrage online - with the moral troll army claiming they are dressed inappropriately for Parliament - How is this inappropriate? Why should there be a dress code in Parliament of 'New India'? Does a dress code make a good MP or is this pure sexism that there is an unwritten rule - that a female MP has to wear traditional clothes as a public representative?
