Israeli parliament lifts dress code after protest over short skirt ban

The Israeli parliament has suspended new dress code rules after staff protested against a ban on skirts deemed too short, according to reports.

Staff in the Knesset staged demonstrations this week after women were turned away for dressing inappropriately following a recent decision to ban politicians, other employees and visitors from wearing miniskirts and short dresses.

Around 30 women demonstrated at the entrance to the Knesset on Wednesday in defiance of the ban, posing for news cameras wearing above-the-knee skirts or dresses.
