ImageKarnataka's Women and Child Welfare Minister C C Patil raised a storm recently with his statements about the clothes he thought women should wear.

Patil said he 'personally (doesn't) favour women wearing provocative clothes' and that women must be aware of how much skin they should cover.

The minister's response came close on the heels of a statement by Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police Dinesh Reddy who suggested that the rise in the number of ra*e cases has much to do with women wearing 'flimsy and fashionable' dresses.

It seems for officials and politicians like Reddy and Patil to blame the victim, but the fact is that it isn't always a fashionably dressed woman who gets raped.

In May 2011, an 80-year-old woman was raped in northwest Delhi. A month later, a teenager was arrested for ra*ing a six month old.

Neither of the two cases, it is safe to say, were wearing 'flimsy and fashionable' dresses that Reddy spoke of.

The 'flimsy and fashionable' dresses Reddy spoke of are more common than he may want to believe. They are an expression of the Confident New Young Indian.

SlutWalk recently organised a protest in New Delhi -- part of a series of protest marches that came as a response to a Toronto police officer's comment that to remain safe 'Women should avoid dressing like sluts' -- to drive home the point that a girl's 'short skirt has nothing to do with you.'

The outfits displayed, in the pages that follow, represent latest Indian fashions.
