Dress code for girls withdrawn in Hyderabad top college for girls.
A prominent girls’ degree college in Hyderabad was forced to withdraw the dress code imposed on the students, after a month-long protest by them.
The dress-code for students as mentioned in the prospectus states, ‘simplicity and modesty in the manner of dress in order to foster a compatible academic atmosphere’ and ‘sleeveless, cold shoulders and short tops are not permitted’.
Esha Chadha, a final year student who participated in the protest, commented, “I think it’s important that people know that we weren’t making unreasonable demands.
Our liberty - be it the open gate system or flexibility of attending the classes we choose are all part of the bigger ecosystem. I’m truly happy that the management has seen merit in our view point.
