Botswana dress code is sexist says women's group
The Botswana government have issused a ban on women civil servants wearing clothes that are too tight or too revealing and a women's group says that is sexist.
The new rules state that if women come to work in too tight skirts or trousers or sleeveless tops or showing too much clevage. They are also not allowed to wear headscarves or 'elaborate hairstyles'.
But the government says workers should dress in a manner appropriate for public office.
Bonolo Khumotaka, publicity secretary for the women's group Emang Basadi, told the BBC the ruling was sexist as the directive did not mention "anything about tight trousers for men".
The government is saying however, that the dress code applies to both men and women, but for women, headscarves are a traditional part of their dress.
