Swaziland bans miniskirts, low-rise jeans to deter rape12/26/2012
The tiny African nation of Swaziland has enacted a new law aimed at preventing rape: make it illegal for women to wear miniskirts, low-rise jeans and midriff-bearing tops. Police spokeswoman Wendy Hleta reported that she had read on "social networks" that men and women "have a tendency of undressing people with their eyes" — something which becomes even easier when the clothes are revealing. Women in violation will be arrested, but it was unclear what punishment breaking this law carries. Hleta added that women who wore revealing clothes were ultimately responsible for rapes committed against them. So much for progress. [Source]
