In a democratic country, every individual is entitled to their own freedom. In India, the dressing styles are changing. Girls prefer wearing shorts during the summer and dresses to parties. But the government the government often makes statements like girls should wear "decent" clothes. Why is it that we still have  statements being made which widens inequality? why are they blaming us for being our selves? doesn't this show that majority of the society are trying to make women more submissive, by thrying to make them change their ways to live safely in their own city???
