St Aloysius College in Mangaluru ordered girl students to not mingle with boys, also banned on carrying cosmetics. The directive sparked a protest within the campus where over 250 students demanded an explanation for this sexist diktat.
The matter came to lime light after an alumnus of St. Aloysius Pre-University College, Satshya Anna Tharien, made a blog post about the new set of rules the college has imposed on the girl students.
The female staff of the college reportedly declared the new set of rules in a closed-door meeting which was attended only by ‘female’ students.
After the ‘Pinjra Tod’ campaign by students from Delhi University to protest against gender discriminatory rules in colleges and hostels and a similar controversy at Christ College, it seems that St. Aloysius Pre-University College of Mangalore has decided to repeat the same mistakes.
The guidelines imposed by the college didn’t go down the throat of one of the students who took on to social media in order to expose and condemn the college’s ‘rule-book.’
