In this 21st century where every day we talk about gender equality and various other things which regard that female are no less than their counterparts (male).Then why there is always a turbulence of thoughts behind the dressing sense of girls, late night timing, outing with friends etc.
The National Commission for Women has taken suo-moto cognizance of media reports on protests at Hindu College about rules for the new hostel. The NCW has written to the college authorities demanding "a detailed explanation, regarding the basis on which the hostel rules have been framed."
A statement issued by the NCW says it is "seriously concerned about this issue."
"As per the media report, the hostel prospectus mentions about (sic) certain rules including girls to wear dresses as per normal norms of the society, not to be allowed to watch TV in the common room after 10:30 pm and they are allowed to take only one night-out in a month," says the NCW letter.
Women's group Pinjra Tod, which campaigns against gender biases and discrimination in student residences, had studied the prospectus of the new hostel for women at Hindu College. They alleged that the rules are not applicable to the men's hostel on the same campus, and this will turn the hostel into a "prison" for the women residents.
While the College authorities, however, countered saying that the rules were framed following those of other women's hostels in Delhi University and that their "accountability is to the parents."
