College girls in Kanpur react against jeans ban

ANI

Girls in Kanpur have reacted against the decision of the colleges to ban wearing jeans by them in the institutes to stop eve teasing. Four colleges in the city all affiliated with Kanpur University have prohibited their students from wearing jeans, after a recent meeting. The authorities decided to take the step after receiving several complaints of eve-teasing that were occurring just outside the college gate.

What do you think of the dress code for women in colleges?

Do you think the authorities have the right to dictate what you should and shouldn't wear, given the incidents of eve-teasing that occur from time to time?

Do the clothes you wear legitimise unwanted attention from the opposite sex?
