China Regulates Revealing Clothing in Bars

Good news for the ladies: in an effort to stop prostitution, China is regulating what bar employees wear by encouraging a more modest dress code and forcing bars, night clubs, and karaoke clubs to install windows in their private rooms. The regulations were put into place to ward off businessmen entertaining guests with prostitutes.

Fundamentally, I don't support telling people what they can and cannot wear, however bars and clubs shouldn't force their employees to wear revealing clothes. It's degrading. Entertainment establishments can still be edgy without having scantily clad women behind the bar. Likewise, making it harder for wealthy businessmen to buy sex raises moral standards when it comes to gender relations.
