In the recent development, Uttarakhand CM Rawat had commented on women wearing ripped jeans. He also commented on how these ripped jeans can degrade their value and impact their children.
I once boarded a plane to #Jaipur. A woman was sitting next to me, wearing boots and ripped jeans. 2 children were accompanying the woman who runs an NGO. What message will she give to society? said Uttarakhand CM Rawat
The Uttarakhand CM continued, “She was wearing gumboots and her jeans were torn at the knees. She told me that she runs a non-governmental organisation,” he said. “She runs an NGO, her knees are visible, she moves around in the society and kids are with her. What values will she give [to the children]?”
Post his sexist comments, netizens started bashing him by sharing their pictures in ripped jeans and with the hashtag #RippedJeansTwitter.

Ripped Jeans aur Kitab.
The country’s ‘sanskriti’ & ‘sanskaar’ are impacted by men who sit and judge women and their choices. Soch badlo Mukhyamantri Rawat ji, tabhi desh badlega. #RippedJeansTwitter pic.twitter.com/qYXcN88fY6

Rapes happen not because women wear short clothes but because men like Tirath Singh Rawat propagate mysogyny and fail to do their duty.
