Seriously though, women in Malawi are taking it to the streets to end harassment. It's legal for them to wear pants, yes, but that hasn't stopped men from attacking women on the street and stripping them of pants and miniskirts. Just another example of the fact that equality under law doesn't always translate to the social sphere.
It's been 18 years since the late dictator Hastings Kamuzu Banda's "indecency in dress" laws were repealed in Malawi, but mobs of men and boys in the largely conservative southern African country have recently been publicly stripping women of their miniskirts and pants.
Friday, hundreds of outraged girls and women, among them prominent politicians, protested the attacks while wearing pants or miniskirts and T-shirts emblazoned with such slogans as: "Real men don't harass women." A recording of Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry" got a loud cheer when it was played during the protest. Men also took part.
The other thing to note about this story: what sort of person wants to force women to dress a certain way? Oppressive dictators. Don't go in that category, people. Listen to women.
