Dr. Phil Examines Timeline Of Dad’s Alleged Sexual Assault On Toddler
A comprehensive timeline of men telling women what to wear
THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR MILLENNIA.
By Corinne Redfern
It doesn’t matter if you want to leave the house wearing a clown costume, a £4k Dolce & Gabbana abaya or a pair of slightly-see-through-but-really-comfy leggings paired with a tie-dyed crop top – what you wear is always your choice.
Or at least, itshouldbe.
And yet, throughout history, women have continually fallen subject to various rules and regulations that dictate what we ‘can’ and ‘can’t’ put on our bodies. In fact, men telling women what to wear has been going on for thousands and thousands of years. So much so, that when we started making this timeline we thought it would take about 45 minutes. Instead, it took four and a half hours – and we’ll probably have to come back and add to it some more next week.
From the recent burkini rulings in the south of France to the news that women in Iran are forced to cut off their hair and disguise themselves as men if they want to leave the house without a hijab – not to mention the ongoing insistence that rape victims should tell juries what they were wearing before their attackers are found innocent – society is still bafflingly obsessed with the way women cover up.

2016: BANNING THE BURKINI
On the 28 July, 20 towns in the south of France decided to ban the ‘burkini’ and force Muslim women on beaches to remove their headscarves along the coast. Photos emerge of armed police surrounding one woman and forcing her to undress on the beach in front of hundreds of strangers, and protests take place all over the world in her defence.
2014: ISIS EXECUTES WOMEN NOT WEARING THE NIQAB WITH GLOVES
Reports emerge from Iraq where ISIS claimed responsibility for stoning women to death because they weren’t wearing gloves with their niqabs.
