Indonesian province plans to outlaw ‘sexy’ clothes as solution to violence against women

Throughout much of Indonesia, government officials are becoming increasingly aware that the country is facing a hidden epidemic of gender-based violence. While women’s rights activists are fighting to get the government to enact a draft bill to comprehensively address sexual violence (through mechanisms such as increased protections for victims and witnesses, increased access to justice, recovery and reparation mechanisms for victims) the regional representatives council for Bengkulu (DPRD), a province on the island of Sumatra, has a different idea for preventing violence against women and children in their region.

Their solution? Outlawing sexy clothes.

    Gee, I wonder how many “slut walks” feminists will be organizing against this? I’ll bet they’re planning them right this very minute. I’m sure we’ll see them marching in the streets any day now…
