Mandatory skirts for women’s equality

4 May

Have Malaysia’s badminton officials just watched A League of their Own or something?

The governing body of badminton in this hilarious island nation felt that women players weren’t getting the attention that male badminton players enjoy. Solution?

“Just put on the damn skirts.”

The “esthetic and stylish presentation” of players was an important factor in increasing badminton’s popularity, [deputy president Paisan]¬†Rangsikitpho added.

“The clothing regulation is yet another example of how BWF are putting focus on the women’s game to raise the profile.”

Congratulations Malaysia, you have now made it as far as the 1940s.
