"The women's dressing nowadays can entice men to harass and do things to them."These are the words of Shabudin Yahya (BN-Permatang Berangan). Debating the motion of thanks in the Penang state assembly yesterday, he said the way women dressed up was among factors that led to sexual harassment and violent sexual acts being committed.
Jasmin Mohamed (BN-Sungai Dua) said women's pursuit of position prompted many of them to put aside their responsibility to the family and was one of the reasons for the violent sexual acts.
For women's own good, these two men have proposed a dress code for women. The Bernama story here does not provide details on the proposed dress code, though.
