Chief Justice of Pakistan likens good speeches to women's skirt sizes
However, during the speech he also made a certain extremely derogatory remark on women's clothing and used his archaic sense of metaphorical 'wisdom' to make a comment which showed his 'expertise' on women's skirts. This came to light when Pak Tea House shared this video on their Facebook page;
The Chief Justice of Pakistan jokingly added, and i quote; "A speech should be like a woman's skirt, it should not be too long that one loses the interest and neither too short that it doesn't cover the subject."
The comment by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar has brought on mixed reviews with some even praising him for his "amazing wording";
Some applauded him for his "legit sense of humor";
While others blamed classic literary writers like Oscar Wilde for the 'indecent anecdotes';
However, most people realized this was no joking matter and criticized the CJP for his choice of words;
WDF strongly condemns the use of sexist language by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar in a recent event in Karachi. It’s utterly shameful for a Chief Justice to be using such language and referring to women and their clothing in such a manner.— Women Democratic Front (@wdf_pk) January 20, 2018
However, this isn't all that shocking considering the multitudes of incidents Pakistani politicians and government officials have hurled sexist and inappropriate comments at their fellow female colleagues.
Pakistan as a nation has only recently started coming to terms with its sexual abuse and harassment epidemic and we are finally having the most vital discussions related to violence and abuse against women and many celebrities and advocates have come up to break ground regarding sexual abuse awareness however, comments like these point to a larger debate regarding how women are represented and treated even at the top most sections of the hierarchy of power.
