Dubai offers Abayas to women with short Dresses

Dubai Municipality is offering Abaya

The Dubai Municipality is now offering Abayas to those women who are not in line with the dress code in the Emirates during their visits to the city centers or Business centers.

As reported by Al Arabiya on Tuesday, this new move has come after several complaints had been made that women would often visit in scanty or revealing clothing.

The new announcement has followed extremely closely by the footage which has gone viral over the last 24 hours, which shows the Egyptian Actress Abeer Sabry being scolded and told off by a local UAE woman, according to the report of the paper.

It is stated that the local UAE woman thought that the Egyptian actress was not following and disrespecting the dress code of her country.

In the video the local UAE woman can be heard saying that this is her country and she can say anything that she wants to say, she added that the Egyptian actress should wear respectful clothes.

Sabry and one other woman with her started saying that who was she to tell them what to wear and what not to wear. 

It was also added that those women who have not dressed appropriately to the code of conduct, may not be allowed to enter the building at all.

What is the dress code?

Any piece of clothing that exposes any part of your body which should be covered is transparent or contains any obscene or offensive slogans and pictures are not allowed to be worn in public.

One of the Municipality officials sounded extremely upset over the types of clothing some women wore while visiting these centers. He added that we would not believe what type of clothing was worn by some of the women who came to the centers.
