I was forbidden from entering a reputed management college recently, because I was wearing a dress. I was not going as a student or as faculty but to attend an entrepreneurship event being held, independent of the college, on a Sunday. Of note, the predominantly male crowd was in ratty teeshirts or shirts, ill-fitted (read comfortable) jeans and sandals. I was wearing a dress that came to an inch above my knee and would also be appropriate to the evening dinner that I was going to, later. Couldn’t attend the event because the college deemed it ‘not appropriate’.
