“Women should avoid wearing any garments that are too tight, too short or translucent such as mini-skirts or sleeveless dresses,” according to a campaign poster posted on the campaign’s Twitter account @reflect_respect.

The banned attires were shown in a picture Tweeted by the campaign. They also appeared to include short dresses, leggings and shorts.
