The Twitter user, Ifeyinwa, shared her experience as she was denied entry into one of the government offices.
Twitter users who have reacted to her post, said there was nothing wrong with her dress.
I was refused entry into a government office today because my dress was “indecent”.
This same government office requires married women to submit a letter of PERMISSION from their husbands to travel. This is Nigeria.
I asked the security guard what was so indecent about my dress, and he said it was short. An older lady wearing a fitted dress that was the same length as mine walked interjected, I told her not to bother and I left.
That’s how my defender would’ve been kicked out too. Let’s not pretend that women have any rights or are treated with respect in this country. ESPECIALLY young, single women. At this point, I can’t even get angry.
