A recent dress code suggested for female teachers in Tamil Nadu to stop them from being sexually attractive has sparked off a debate in the social media.

The suggestion was received, when the state Education department invited opinions from teachers for streamlining the teacher-student relationship, after a female teacher eloped with her student Kadayanallur town in Tirunelveli district. A section of teacher associations suggested a dress code for women teachers.

"Women teachers should wear dresses covering their entire body similar to the black gown worn by women advocates in court,” read a message circulated in the social media, which has sparked off a huge debate among netizens.
