That's really strange and sad to read all the views mentioned above. I completely disgaree with all of you, I mean we don't have any right to say that someone's exposure of skin is perceived as a tool of attracting or distracting you. Are you really considering women as objects and not individuals by pointing out the dresses they wear as a tool to attract or distract? I would rather say that it's your problem if you are attracted , distracted or whatever and not the one who is wearing the clothes of her own choice.
Each one of us have our own space and if you have a problem with such little factors, then bang on you should go and get it fixed. It actually doesn't have any connection with the rising crimes against women, instead the thinking that is imbibed in all of you out there is a major reason of increasing Gender Inequality and all the hype created against the issue. As a matter of fact, a woman wearing fully-covered clothes(as you like to hear) is also raped or harrased or being weirdly stared at. Irrespective of whatever you are wearing, you are being tortured by the "so-called masculined traits", then how the hell does it really matter whether a woman is dressed up of your choice or of her own choice.
By the way, this is really sad to know that people think, a woman dresses up to attract or distract people. Get some air people, why would a girl or a woman give so much importance as to what others think of her. At one point, the whole world is talking about 'Gender Equality' and other such fancy terms that I don't see people out there to be sensitized with and on the other end, everyday we encounter people with such belittle and narrow thoughts.
Anyways this discussion can go on and on, I'd just like to sum up here that we should join our hands in creating safer, healthier and empowering spaces for women and girls to help them live with dignity and respect. Judging a particular section of society is not right as you are invading someone's personal space.
P.S.- That's my personal opinion and I don't mean to argue with anyone here. Your thoughts may vary with mine but that's what my opinion is.
