Dive In


We cannot take it to illogical ends. If you say the right to dress is a fundamental right, then the right to undress also becomes a fundamental right.

That’s what Supreme Court justice Hemant Gupta said while hearing a challenge to Karnataka’s ban on hijabs in schools. The Court also brushed aside arguments that members of other communities are allowed to wear religious accessories, saying: “But the rudraksh and the cross are worn inside the shirt. No one is removing your shirt to find out what you are wearing. It is not displayed outside.”

The TLDR: The Hollywood actor/director’s new movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ has been caught in a series of controversies—mostly bizarre and entertaining. But the PR debacle also reveals the perils of using feminism to get ahead—and promote your personal brand. No, being a girlboss isn’t a good thing any more.
