  1. Uganda Tries Getting Women Out of Their Miniskirts

    The Ugandan parliament is set to ban the itty bitty clothing from women‘s hips. Sixty years after the controversial strip of fabric became a symbol of the sexual revolution, women in the East African nation now face the risk of 10 years in jail for wearing minis. Adding to the government‘s list of attacks on gender equality, this bill is expected to be signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni soon. Meanwhile, activists are encouraging women to stand up for their rights and hike up their skirts.
