For many of us, dress codes may just be a harmless inconvenience. Something we observe when entering parliament, at work or even at dining establishments, but when does it go too far? And are there double standards when it comes to expectations of how women dress in public? We hear the thoughts of three women - Fifa Rahman, Policy Consultant, Malaysian AIDS Council, Suri Kempe, Programme Manager, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and Dr. Alicia Izharuddin, Senior Lecturer, Gender Studies, Universiti Malaya.
