Women’s uniforms in armed forces

WOMEN officers in armed forces wear different style of dresses. While in the Navy and the Army, they wear a sari, in the Air Force they are asked to wear trousers and bush-shirts, almost like their male counterparts.

Sometime back women officers in the PAF used to wear saris but later a change in uniform was brought about without taking into account the sentiments of women officers. It’s time the PAF considered revising this decision in consultation with lady officers.

It is felt that one major factor was simply not kept in mind while ordering the change in uniform – the biological changes that take place in a woman’s life cycle (pregnancy etc).

A sari covers a woman sufficiently enough to pass through this phase in her life with dignity.

Shalwar-kameez for the women police and sari for women officers of the three armed forces should be the dress code.
