Senator Enacts Dress Code For Women

KSAL StaffJanuary 22, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Senate committee chairman has imposed a dress code for Kansas residents testifying on an elections or ethics bill that prohibits women from wearing certain clothing while establishing no wardrobe restrictions exclusively for men.

A rule of Sen. Mitch Holmes’ 11-point code of conduct says “low-cut necklines and miniskirts” are inappropriate for women.

Holmes says he offered detailed guidance to women because he had observed provocatively clad women at the state Capitol. He says it’s a distraction to the Senate committee during testimony.

A group of bipartisan women senators says no chairman ought to place gender-specific demands on those inspired to share thoughts on public policy with legislative committees.

Holmes is a St. John Republican and chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee.
