Short Skirt Ban Stirs Controversy (link no longer works):
A Russian regional government has told its women employees to stop wearing short skirts and tone down their make-up because they were arousing their male colleagues’ “animal instincts.”
I like this quote the best:
“Of course, a woman must attract a man’s attention, but not so much as to overstep norms and arouse not business-like but only animal instincts,” Shlyk told the NTV television network.
“…must attract a man’s attention”. Oh yeah. You got that, all you women!
