Women workers of northern railway have written to the Railway Board saying that given the lack of changing room for them at most stations, their uniform should be restricted to an apron which can be worn over their regular clothes.
Sunita Dhiman, General Secretary of the women's wing of Uttariya Railway Mazdoor Union (URMU) wrote to Railway Board Chairman Ashwani Lohani, requesting him to change their uniform, which is either a salwar kameez or shirt and pant depending on the category of work.
"There are no changing rooms for women staff at stations. We are just requesting railways to provide aprons to us which we can wear over our regular clothes. It will save us time as well. Also, the quality of cloth supplied to us for our uniforms are transparent and of very poor quality. We can't even wear them for long," Dhiman told PTI.
In fact, she said, women staffers from across northern railways have the same problem with uniform.
