“Misogynist” Notice To Delhi University College Over Ban On Selfies, Combing Hair

The Delhi Commission for Women issued a notice to the principal of Miranda House today over a circular issued by the college to ban taking selfies and combing hair in its corridors.

Few students had approached the commission and complained about the "misogynistic" notice and the DCW notice came thereafter.

“We have asked for a point-wise reply from the college on the students' complaint within 7 days," a DCW official said.

The notice that was directed to School for Open learning (SOL) students stated that activities like clicking selfies, combing hair and modelling in corridors leads to "misutilisation" of time and students doing so might even face suspension for a day.

Students demanded the circular to be rolled back and had also staged a protest last week.

College principal Pratibha Jolly had earlier said that it was aimed at ensuring "safety" of students but later she clarified that the notice is only "suggestive" and won't be "imposed".

However Krantikari Yuva Sangathan( an association of SOL students) had still decided to approach the DCW..
