How short is too short?

Women are often judged on what they wear. Either it’s too short, too revealing, too provocative, too loud, too tight or just inappropriate. Public shaming of women wearing too little or too much is on the rise, yet young women are adamant that they are NOT just about how they dress. It’s a worldwide issue but is it right to judge someone about their personal worth based on how they choose to explore fashion. If fashion is a form of self expression, does this kind of critique help a woman? Yet social norms deem otherwise. Here’s what Saruk Tamrakar have to say on this topic.

Nobody has the right to judge me for my clothes so I don’t judge a woman by the length of her outfit. Yes, everyone has the right to wear what they want, but one needs to make sure they dress according to the occasion. However, the sad truth about our society is that most women are seen differently when they wear an outfit of a certain length. So, it’s always better to have a good idea about the community that one is visiting. Some places might lack education and tourism and are likely to be more conservative. In such areas, women might face harassment. A turnaround of this situation will definitely take time as it is directly or indirectly related to factors such as economy, politics and technology. Our society is in a transitional phase and sooner or later things will change for good.
