Actress-activist Renuka Shahane  agrees with Hema. “I do not think there was anything wrong in the clothes both had worn. Their dress was not “unparliamentary” at all.

Swara  Bhaskar has  the  last word  on the subject of objectifying women in parliament. “It’s classic textbook sexism and shouldn’t be given attention.”
