MINISKIRTS TO BE OUTLAWED IN ITALIAN RESORT

The mayor of Castellammare di Stabia, a southern Italian beach town, has ordered police officers to fine women who wear short miniskirts as part of a battle to raise what he describes as the level of public decorum. At a council meeting last night, Luigi Bobbio, the recently elected mayor, won a vote to ban clothing considered "very short" from the town. Police will have the power to hand out €300 fines to offenders.
Explaining what he meant by "very short", Bobbio said officers would target women wearing miniskirts that did not fully cover their underwear. He said he had faith in officers to make snap decisions. "They won't need to carry out checks up close," Bobbio told the Corriere del Mezzogiorno. "One glance will be enough to decide."
The new rules, which were approved by the town council yesterday, drew outrage from local opposition politicians, who mounted a sit-in outside the town hall. "The Bobbio administration is male chauvinist," the organisers of the protest said in a statement. "This town does need decorum, but not the decorum that is measured by a tape measure held against women's clothing."
"By equating women's clothing with urban decorum, this measure implies women are no more than benches or hedges," said councillor Angela Cortese. She said she was equally angered by a local priest, Don Paolo Cecere, who praised the move and claimed it could cut down on sexual harassment. "This turns the clock back years for women and undermines all our victories," she said.
The Italian consumer group Aduc added: "Is Castellammare di Stabia in the province of Naples? No, it's in the province of Teheran."
The miniskirt ban is one of 41 new decorum measures introduced by Bobbio. Swearing in public, kicking footballs in the street, lying on benches, climbing trees and walking a dog with a lead longer than two metres will also be targeted. Bobbio said people would not be allowed to wander off the beach in their swimming costume. "This is not Mallorca," he said.
